The cold, windy, and foggy weather did not dampen the enthusiasm and level of play by the Manteo and First Flight girls soccer teams at the First Flight field on March 17. Strong offensive team play with multiple passes and skilled dribbling by the Lady Nighthawks proved too much for the Manteo squad. Unfortunately, the score does not reflect how well Manteo played, the team never gave up and challenged every attack that First Flight threw at them.

Manteo falls to 0-2 for the season while First Flight improves to 2-0. First Flight will next play their second game against Camden County on March 22 at home. Manteo returns home to face Currituck County on March 22 as well.
