Greensboro Edges Wilmington

A crowd of 43,176, one of the largest in Greensboro history, watched the Vipers take down Wilmington Storm FC 1-0 in the 2nd of 2 exhibiton matches between the clubs.
Match facts can be found here.
The two in-state rivals have played exhibitions multiple times, and even though they occupy different leagues, are two of the most talented teams in the state.
Farrell O'Reagan netted what proved to be the game winner for the Vipers in the 27th minute.
"I got a good cross my way and put a head to it," said O'Reagan.
The ball found the top corner of the goal, beating Wilmington keeper Blaze Aames.
The game was closely contested the whole way, but niether team could capitalize on opportunities, and both sterling defences were stout.
The two teams plan to schedule more exhibitons, and have mentioned including other prestigious North Carolina based clubs in a North Carolina Champions League of sorts.
