The Nansemond River field hockey team made sure Indian River did not come back this time, defeating the visiting Lady Braves 5-0 on Wednesday evening.

Lady Warriors coach Ali Mowry said her team took winning for granted against Indian River last year. This year, they held a 1-0 lead at halftime, just like before, and Mowry reminded her team of it.

“I wanted to make sure that they had a little fire in them so (they’d) come out strong that second half,” she said.
