CAMDEN — The Camden boys soccer team ended its not winning streak on Thursday.

After back-to-back ties, the Bruins topped Pasquotank 4-2 at home.

First-year Camden coach Preston Kuno faced his former team in the non-conference clash and saw his new club take a 2-0 advantage both off Austin Byers goals.

When the Panthers (0-2) charged back to knot the score, Byers delivered an assist to Bryce Miller to put the Bruins (1-0-2) up for good.

Kevin Robertson finished off the offense with a goal in the 65th minute. Kevin Brigman also had an assist in the victory.

Camden next hosts Northeastern on Monday while Pasquotank is also at home and faces Gates, a team it lost to by a 2-1 score this past Monday.


Northeastern 5, Northeast Academy 4: Trailing 4-3 with two doubles matches to go, the Lady Eagles won both for the season opening victory Thursday.

Playing in a pro set format, the teams split wins in singles and then Northeast took a short-lived 4-3 advantage after winning at No. 2 doubles. 

That’s when Anne Claire Foreman and Ashlyn Twiford secured an 8-2 result at No. 1 and then Haidyn Fairweather and Madeline Twiford blanked their opponents at No. 3.

“The girls played great and fought out tough matches,” NHS coach April Turner said.

Fairweather and Twiford also took wins at Nos. 5-6 singles as well as Foreman at No. 1.

Currituck 9, Riverside 0: The Lady Knights got off to a strong start this season by blanking the Williamston school on Thursday.

In sweeping singles, Currituck dropped just five games combined in the six pro set matches. Sarah Dover, Julianna Chalk, Hanna Holden and Heather Hennessey all won 8-0 while Jayne Fallon took an 8-3 decision.

Breanna Cartwright and Brittany Beickert won their No. 2 doubles match 9-7. 

Next for the Lady Knights is a home date with Washington on Monday.
