The Lady Nighthawks soccer team was able to secure a 5-2 win over the Currituck Lady Knights Monday April 12 at the First Flight soccer pitch in Kill Devil Hills. The game essentially was divided into two games – one dominated by First Flight in roughly the first six minutes of play and one in which both teams were fairly even, competing hard for each strike of the ball.

From the opening whistle, First Flight scored thee unanswered goals within the first five minutes of play. It appeared to many that it would be an early evening. However, Currituck didn’t think that way at all and soon their keeper Grace Walls became a nearly impenetrable wall and the Currituck offense kept the ball near the First Flight goal for much of the rest of the first half and would eventually score their first of two goals. The second half was an excellent soccer game with both teams exhibiting fine team play. The loss is Currituck’s first giving them a 6-1 record for the season. With the win, First Flight remains undefeated with a record of 7-0.
