* BARCO -- Collin DuBose mashed a second-inning, solo home run and Charles B. Aycock handed Currituck County a season-ending, 9-4 loss during third-round action in the N.C. High School Athletic Association 3-A playoffs Friday evening.

The Golden Falcons (18-8 overall) continue play Tuesday at Waccamaw champion West Brunswick. First pitch is 7 p.m.
