XENIA — The Troy boys soccer team’s shutout streak ended Tuesday night.

For a while, it seemed like the Trojans’ winning streak might, as well.

But Troy (8-0, 5-0 Greater Western Ohio Conference American North Division) rallied from an early 1-0 deficit on the road at Xenia Tuesday night, defeating their GWOC sister division-leading Buccaneers (5-3, 2-3 GWOC American South) 2-1 on the road.

Luke Johnson scored the game-tying goal for the Trojans, then Collin Hubbell scored the game-winner on an assist from Bailey Webb. Goalkeeper Troy Breisch made three saves on the night to preserve the win.

Troy returns home Thursday night to face its first American North Division opponent, hosting Greenville.
