GREENVILLE -- Charles B. Aycock took a 5-0 lead into the bottom of the sixth inning, but West Johnston rallied for a 7-6 victory during opening-round play of the 2013 Pitt County Classic at Guy Smith Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

Golden Falcons' starting pitcher Bobby Hampton took a no-hitter into the sixth inning and surrendered two earned runs on two hits with five strikeouts and four walks. Hampton settled for a no-decision.

Adam Pate (RBI), Jacob Naughton and Greg Johnson each had two hits for Aycock. Noah West (two RBI) and Logan Brown (RBI) contributed one hit apiece.

Alex Burke supplied an RBI.

Weather permitting, the Golden Falcons (10-4 overall) face Holly Springs at South Central High School today. First pitch is 5 p.m.
