On a chilly Wednesday afternoon at Currituck County High School, the Currituck County girls varsity soccer team scored early and scored often to defeat a visiting Manteo team 9-0. With five first half goals followed by four more in the second half, Currituck County evened its record at 2-2 with the non-conference home game win at Barco.

Earlier this season, Currituck opened with a 9-0 win over Northeastern High School on February 28 only to come up short in the next two non-conference matches. After suffering a 6-2 loss to White Oak on March 8 the Knights fell to Wilmington’s Ashley H.S. 6-1 the next day.

Currituck is now 1-0 in 2-A Northeastern Coastal Conference play.
