After 71 straight wins, top-ranked St. Benedict's Prep's (New Jersey) streak came to an end Tuesday with a 1-0 loss in overtime to Salesianum (Delaware), which is ranked in the latest National Soccer Coaches Association of America Top 25.

The most amazing things about the SBP streak is it began after a 1-0 loss to Salesianum on October 2, 2010.  The streak goes down as the third longest all-time in boys' high school soccer history.
