The First Flight Nighthawks and Currituck Knights football teams played their final game of a very unique season Saturday April 10 at Currituck. The 50-16 win for Currituck closed the book on a season that was punctuated with more asterisks than a well-referenced science article. Almost everything from a global pandemic to bad weather challenged the playing of this season. But the games were played and the season is now a matter of record.
Currituck was a formidable force on the gridiron Saturday. Currituck’s line tore open gaping holes for their power runners Traveon Powell and Carmillo Burton. Quarterback Makegan Piorkowski was a calm, steady presence that guided the Knights throughout the game. Great plays by the First Flight quarterback Porter Braddy and running back Cullen McNinch also gave the Nighthawks faithful in attendance something to cheer about.
