    Proud of the Dare County kids carrying on the tradition of excellence in school soccer started a long time ago.

    Many aren’t aware that the Outer Banks has a tremendous foundation for the sport of soccer, and is known well throughout the state for it.

    Congratulations to both the First Flight, and Manteo programs coaches and players. Both championship level teams!

    Correction needed. First Flight will have a Home game Thursday in Kill Devil Hills versus Carrboro, but Manteo will be on the road at James Keenan (Warsaw, NC).
