Goodson leads Falcons scoring attack while girls play well, but fall in extra time.
Defense proved to be the key in Dacula's 61-53 victory last night over the Black Knights of Central Gwinnett. The Falcons displayed an ability to stay in the game even when the shots weren’t falling. Brandon Goodson once again came out firing, knocking down two of his six total three-pointers right at the start of the game to give Dacula an early 11–6 lead. By the end of the quarter, the offense had cooled. Central Gwinnett went on a nine point run and led 15-11 going into the second. In the second quarter, the offense bounced back behind Goodson’s sharp shooting and Anthony Morse's tough play underneath the basket. Though Central Gwinnett hit a buzzer beater at the end of the half to go up 27–26, the 15-point quarter gave Dacula the …

Dacula takes down Salem to place seventh at the Jared Cook Holiday Tournament.
The Dacula High School girls' basketball team was able to leave the Jared Cook Holiday Classic with a victory after defeating Salem High School 40–28 on Thursday in the seventh-place game. The Lady Falcons had struggled earlier in the tournament, falling in their first two games. After the opening tip-off, the Lady Falcons moved the ball well and found open players under the basket. Dacula has tried to implement a strong passing strategy, but had not been able to maintain its ball distribution for a full game throughout the tournament. "We had good ball movement and that kept things going," head coach Travis Young said. "We were finding the open person inside and out. It was good team play." The Lady Falcons took a 24–19 lead going into …
