Charles B. Aycock celebrated senior night with style.
Senior Hannah Spier scored three goals and had three assists, and senior Morgan Casey scored one goal as the Golden Falcons cruised past Eastern Wayne 8-0.
The four other seniors on C.B. Aycock’s roster are McKenzie Norris, Mackenzie Jones, Colleena Zacharzuk and Savannah Strickland.
“The girls played really well offensively,” C.B. Aycock head coach Paul Casey said. “We’ve gone from being a defensive team to an offensive, attacking team, and I think itshowed on the scoreboard.”
C.B. Aycock improved its record to 6-6-1 overall (4-6 EC 3-A/4-A) while Eastern Wayne drops to 1-11-1 overall (0-9).
The Golden Falcons controlled the tempo all afternoon and wasted no time scoring goals.
“All six senior girls have been together for a long time,” Casey said. “They were ready to go tonight. They were hyped and ready to go for senior night.
“It’s good to have all of them out there playing together. Our passing was crisp and sharp immediately in this game. We’re not a one player team, we had a lot of girls contribute on the offensive end, and I think that made a big difference for us.”
Minutes into the game Casey recovered a deflected ball in the box and scored, while Hannah Spier scored her first goal off a corner kick.
The Golden Falcons went up 3-0 when from outside the box Kayla Spier launched a shot that sailed comfortably into the right corner of the net.
Despite their best efforts, the Warriors were unable to mount a comeback, and C.B. Aycock kept its foot on the gas in the second half.
Early in the second half, off a pass from Hannah Spier, Colleen Jones scored to increase the lead to 4-0. Hannah Spier scored her second goal of the game when she weaved her way through multiple Eastern Wayne defenders and drilled the ball into the back of the net.
Late in the second half, Jones and Hannah Spier scored again to make it a 7-0 game.
With 30 seconds remaining in the game, Haley Martin scored to give the Golden Falcons their eighth and final goal of the game.
Eastern Wayne next hosts Goldsboro, while C.B. Aycock travels to Southern Wayne. Both games are being played tonight.
“I hope we can keep this offensive intensity up, and score a lot of goals,” Casey said.
