Nighthawks Stay Hot Posted 3-15-14
During a break from their regular season, the Newport News Nighthawks took time to participate in a local one day single elimination tournament on Sunday March 9th. The Nighthawks showed a little rust from the time off in their first game playing a very scrappy We Ball team but proved to be a little too strong in the end. The Nighthawks performed on another level in the championship game leading by a wide margin from start to finish. There were no trophies given but the Nighthawks reigned supreme.
Newport News Nighthawks welcomed the EBA's Atlanta Purple Lightning and this was a close contest for much of the first half. The Nighthawks took complete control of the game in the third quarter with stifling defense accompanied with an offensive explosion that put the game out of reach with a 116-95 victory.
Newport News Nighthawks hosted the Seven City Knights of the ABA for their season opener. The Knights have been the big brother figure to the Nighthawks but the Nighthawks took command of this game from the tip. The little brother have come a long way in just one year's time as the Nighthawks won the game 110-96 to start their season 1-0.
Newport News Nighthawks rebounded in their third pre-season game to a huge last second victory over the Seven City Knights at their home in Virginia Beach. The Nighthawks jumped out to an early sizable lead with a balanced inside and outside game with which the Knights had no answer for. The tide quickly changed in the second half as the Knights stormed back and after clawing back into the game, actually took the lead with a fifteen seconds left. The Nighthawks squeaked out the victory with a three pointer from point guard Raymont Harden with about 5 seconds left.
Newport News Nighthawks took on ABPL powerhouse Metropolitan All-Stars in a highly competitive pre-season match up. Despite being undermanned and missing countless free throw attempts, the Nighthawks held a double digit lead in the second quarter before foul trouble caught up with them. The All-Stars took advantage and never looked back in a nine point win.
