Thursday evening saw several big conference battles and streaks coming to an end. Here’s a brief rundown of what you might have missed in last night’s prep sports action.

Boys Soccer
Hatchets 4, Wildcats 2: All good things must eventually come to an end and that’s what happened to Jasper’s winning streak on Thursday evening. The Cats were defeated by Class 2A No. 2 Washington at home for their first conference loss of the season.

Washington took a 2-0 lead into the halftime break but Dillon Sternberg got the Cats on the board with 34 minutes to go in the second half. Then, with seven minutes to play Brian Elizarraras scored on a free kick outside the box to tie things up at 2-2.

However, the Hatchets were able to score two goals in the final six minutes on some crazy sequences to take the victory over Jasper.
