Ten years after First Flight won its first women’s soccer state championship, the Nighthawks are back in the 2A title match after a 4-0 victory over three-time defending champion Carrboro in the East Region Championship Tuesday night.

Megan Limbacher opened the scoring in the 13th minute, followed by Nicole York’s goal at the 32-minute mark that gave the Nighthawks a 2-0 halftime advantage.

In the second half, Casey Bouker scored a pair of goals for the final margin, while keeper Codie Patterson recorded her 13th shutout in 2018.

First Flight will play Saturday at N.C. State University’s Dail Soccer Complex against Lake Norman Charter, which won the West final over Salisbury, 2-0. The start time will be announced Wednesday.

The game will be broadcast online by the NFHS Network. Subscriptions are $9.95 for a month. Network subscribers can watch NCHSAA Championships live and on-demand as well as playoff and championship action from other state associations across the country.
