The Del Norte High boys soccer team went through two full seasons without scoring a Valley League victory. On Thursday night, that streak came to an end.
The Nighthawks snagged their first league victory in the program’s third year at the varsity level, beating host Valley Center 2-1 in the second league game of the season for both schools.
Del Norte, which lost 4-3 to defending champion Orange Glen in the season opener, were not denied against last year’s second-place finisher in the Valley League. All three goals in the game came in the second half.
