PIKEVILLE -- Charles B. Aycock avoided the emotional letdown and rolled past Princeton, 56-18, on Thursday evening.

Second-year starter Zack Howard (106 pounds) and senior 160-pounder Khaleil Owens extended their respective win streaks to 27 and 21 matches. Owens pinned an opponent for the 20th time this season.
Heavyweight Matt Teachey, first-year starter Jacob Dickenson (120 pounds), Jaquan Walker (145), Broc Doyle (170) and Landon Moore (220) each pinned their respective opponent. Jordan Bailey pulled out a 4-2 overtime decision at 126 pounds.
Ryan Morton (195) received the Golden Falcons' lone forfeit.
Princeton got wins from Martin Bayles (113), Holden Holt (138), Cody Parrish (152) and 182-pounder Brent Odham.
C.B. Aycock (23-4 overall) travels to Triton on Jan. 23.
