Off to a 3-0 start to the season, the Fred T. Foard girls soccer team ran into its first speed bump Monday.
The Lady Tigers (3-1) were held offensively against Burns, while the Lady Bulldogs piled on five goals to earn the 5-0 shutout.
â€śWeâ€™re glad weâ€™re getting this game over and its not quite in conference play yet,â€ť said Lady Tigers coach Stan Elliott. â€śWeâ€™re going to learn from this, move forward as a team and get better from here.â€ť
Burns (2-0) scored in the 18th minute to take the early lead on a Whitney Wellman kick from an assist by Kayla Powell.
The Newton-Conover's long home winning streak on the tennis court came to an end Monday with a 6-3 loss to Hickory.
The Red Devils (1-2) had won 64 consecutive matches dating back to 2007 before the Red Tornadoes non-conference court victory.
Newton-Conover starts conference play Tuesday with a match against South Iredell hoping to keep another long streak going. The Red Devils have won 61-straight conference matches heading into their match against the Vikings.

CHAPEL HILL â€” North Carolina was a preseason No. 1 stocked with experience and potential NBA talent that cruised through the regular season showing only flashes of the dominant form everyone had expected.
The fourth-ranked Tar Heels have gotten everyone's attention again.
North Carolina clinched the Atlantic Coast Conference regular-season championship by overwhelming Duke in its famously hostile arena. The question now is whether that weekend performance was just one game or the start of something more for the Tar Heels heading into this week's ACC tournament in Atlanta.
