BULLETIN: Nov. 11, 2018 — One of the longest unbeaten streaks has come to an end

In the New York Class B state final played today at Williamsville (N.Y.) North, Garden City (N.Y.) upended Shrub Oak Lakeland (N.Y.) by a 1-0 score in a game featuring two of the state’s finest all-time coaches, Diane Chapman and Sharon Sarsen.

The loss by Lakeland, the No. 2 team in the TopOfTheCircle.com Top 10, not only ends its hunt for a 10th consecutive state championship, but it also halts the Hornets’ unbeaten streak at 137 matches. It now stands as the fourth-longest unbeaten string of all time, trailing only Watertown (Mass.) and two streaks by Voorhees Eastern (N.J.), a team which won its 20th straight state title yesterday.
