NOVA dropped to 0-6 on the year after falling in a doubleheader to Christendom Friday evening, while Sunday's twinbill at CCBC Catonsville was cancelled due to a scheduling conflict and will not be made up.

Going into Thursday's game, CSM is 9-21 in 2018 and hosts Chesapeake Monday before turning its attention to the Nighthawks. RCC, meanwhile, opened the season at Montgomery in early March, and has played a limited slate this year.

NOVA and in-state foe Rappahannock have met every year since the Nighthawks first took the field in 2015. The Seagulls own the all-time series 4-3, as the Nighthawks look to take the series lead Saturday at Wakefield Chapel Park.
