CVC's league winning streak ends at 112


12:00 AM, Jan. 19, 2013 EST

The winning streak is over.

But the unbeaten streak continues.

The Central Valley Christian girls soccer team saw its league winning streak end at 112 games with a 1-1 Central Sequoia League tie against Exeter on Friday night.

"It is a really cool record and I'm proud of it for the school and the seasons it has been going," CVC coach Jacob De Groot said. "At this point, it has almost become distracting because all the girls asked me about it after the game. We came back from a 1-0 deficit against a really good team and I want to be proud of that."

The Cavaliers were trailing 1-0 when Nicole Bouvia knocked in a penalty kick in the 72nd minute.

Goalkeeper Emily Whyte finished with four saves as the Cavaliers improved to 3-0-1 and 6-7-3.

"It was a heck of match. It was a lot of fun," De Groot said. "I wouldn't say we dominated, but we outshot Exeter. We just didn't finish well. We have to do a better job of that."

The Cavaliers will look to bounce back when they play Kingsburg on Tuesday.

"All records and streaks do come to an end. I'm not looking forward to it, but it will be OK," De Groot said. "I'm going to take the same approach and take it one game at a time. It won't get any easier with Kingsburg on Tuesday."

Exeter scored in the 29th minute on a goal by Irene Moreno.

Goalkeeper Cara Bryant kept busy, finishing with nine saves.

"We were really happy to get through this week with a win and a tie," Exeter coach Darin Lasky said. "It was a good result for us."
