It was a game of two steps forward, one step back for the Nashville Nightwatch tonight in their home opener against the Raleigh Flyers. The defending Southern Division champs played smooth offensively and frustrated the Nightwatch with their defensive pressure in the first half to build a 13-9 lead at halftime. The Nightwatch came roaring out after the break to score four unanswered goals to close within 13-12 but the second half proved to be a story of getting close but never catching up to the Flyers. In the final two minutes, the Flyers simply played a game of keep away from the Nightwatch to secure the victory. The Nightwatch (1-3) will host the Charlotte Express on May 7th.
