First Flight Basketball team

First Flight had a big win over Northeastern.

After resuming their post-Christmas break schedule, the Manteo Redskins mens team logged a 2-1 record last week. They opened with a 56-51 road victory over Mattamuskeet on Jan. 3. The next day, they won another close road game with a 53-49 victory over Currituck County. The mini-streak came to an end on Jan. 7 when Manteo dropped a tight 66-63 contest to Gates County, that one also on the road. For the season to date, the Redskins squad is 5-3, with a conference mark of 0-1.

Meanwhile, the First Flight Nighthawks got 2019 off to a great start with an exciting 67-65 win over Northeastern on the road. That marks the Nighthawks’ first victory over Northeastern in a dozen years. For the season, First Flight is 6-6 overall with a 1-0 conference mark.
