ALMA – The Lady Nighthawks wrapped up their regular season with a 5-2 loss to the Amherst Vikettes last week before a 1-0 victory in the annual Thanksgiving Day Turkey Bowl game against North Nova.
Isabelle Bennett had a huge game for NRHS with two goals, one from a direct free kick and one from the run of play. Hannah Mertin and Savannah Lees took care of the goalkeeping.
On Monday morning, the team hosted North Nova in the eight annual Turkey Bowl game and the Lady Nighthawks were thankful for the Mertin sisters as Hannah kept a clean sheet in goal stopping all shots, while twin sister Emily scored the winning goal.
Next up for the Lady Nighthawks will be a NSSAF regional playoff game in Amherst tonight against the Vikettes. If they win they will be in East Hants Tigers for the regional championship game this Thursday at 4 p.m.
