STANHOPE — It took all season but the Southern Nash High girls soccer team finally lost a match.

The Ladybirds saw their 15-game winning streak come to an end as Roanoke Rapids prevailed 2-1 in the 2-A/3-A Big East Conference tournament championship game Wednesday at Southern Nash.

The 2-A Yellow Jackets (14-3) had lost two regular-season matches by a goal each to the 3-A Ladybirds (18-1-1) but defense played a role in Wednesday’s final. Southern Nash got a first-half goal from Emory Gibson but couldn’t find the net in the second half despite numerous opportunities, said head coach Robbie Kennedy.

Freshman Casey Neal and senior Cameron Neal each had goals in the first half for the Yellow Jackets while junior Skyler Wade provided an assist. Roanoke Rapids goalkeeper Rylie Wade was credited with 22 saves.

Southern Nash, the Big East regular-season champion and top seed, and Roanoke Rapids, will learn their playoff assignment Friday when the NCHSAA releases its girls soccer playoff brackets. The postseason will kick off Monday.
