Post match commets from Jackets head coach Craig Jean, "We picked up a huge win against an extremely skilled/talented Currituck team. It definitely wasn't our best start to the game and they by far controlled possession, but the speed of our counter attack was the difference in the game. AJ Pearson really rose to the occasion and had some huge saves for us. I am extremely proud of him. It was not a pretty game by any means, but this group finds ways to win. Once we get a lead in the 2nd half, we can eat a clock with the best of them. We are thrilled to have at least 2 more days together and excited to host a 3rd round matchup against Carrboro."
