Following an afternoon with Coach Burner, it is an evening with Coach Wilkins & his Central Falcons











BROADWAY - Central returned to Broadway Friday night for their second and final game in the 7TH Annual Gobbler Invitational Basketball Tournament. The Falcons were facing Potomac Falls (Loudon County- Class AA) and showed a noticeable difference in energy in comparison to the opening game against the Gobblers.
J.J. Armentrout's lay up just before half allowed Central to take a 23-21 lead in to the locker room but the Falcons struggled in the third quarter. PFHS outscored Central 18-9 in the third quarter and then pushed the lead out to 50-36 with 5:59 remaining in the contest.
The time out called belonged to Potomac's Head Coach Jeff Hawes but it was the Falcons that responded to Wilkins telling them they had 6 minutes of basketball left to play.
Armentrout found Stuart French open for a 3-pointer to begin the final run and when Morgan Reynard went hard to the basket for a lay-up at 2:23 the lead was trimmed to 52-48. The 12-2 run included six different Falcons scoring points but Central would not get closer than 4 points the remainder of the contest.
Armentrout finished out the game with a put back to make the final score 59-52 and give Wilkins some positive thoughts moving forward.
"We played tonight with a great deal more energy than our first game," Wilkins said. "The game tonight showed more of how we are capable of playing as a team."
Central (0-2) is off until Wednesday (12/3) when the Falcons welcome Stonewall Jackson to Woodstock.
