The Northeastern boys soccer team defeated Pasquotank 5-1 on Monday evening at Northeastern.

Manteo 4, John A. Holmes 2: Manteo (11-3-1, 8-0-0 Albemarle Athletic Conference) opened play with two goals inside the first ten minutes, provided by Randall Klotz and Brandon Gonzalez-Martinez. But the Aces responded with two goals of their own — one a solo strike from Nev Duruman and the second, also off Duruman's boot, from an assist by Marsel Zidan.

The teams traded threatening attacks for the remainder of the period of the league match and the Redskins were able to convert two of theirs, both by Randall Klotz.

In the second half, the Redskins pressed forward aggressively in their attacking half and created numerous opportunities, but the Aces played inspired defense as Josh Colon played a solid game in goal for the Aces.

The Aces (7-8-1, 4-3-0 AAC) counter-attacked regularly throughout the half and out-shot the Redskins in the period, but neither team could capitalize and the half ended scoreless.

“A loss is rarely a satisfactory result, and this outing is not an exception,“ Edenton coach Tom DiMartino said. ”but it's clear that the our squad continues to improve in every game."
