The Grand Island Senior High boys' soccer team's season ending at the hands of their arch–rival Kearney High on Wednesday in the State Tournament. The Islanders will head into next season still searching for their first win in Omaha since 2013.

Kearney High scoring the only goal of the game in the first half courtesy of Matt Stute. The Islanders firing off 19 shots at KHS goalkeeper Jacob Hardy. Unfortunately for Grand Island none found the back of the net. The Islanders walked off the field with their heads held high.

" It was a roller coaster ride," said Head Coach Jeremy Jensen. " We started the year a bit rocky trying to figure out some ways to manufacture some form of attack. We changed our formation up and it cost us our first couple of games. We got hot, won the conference championship and then our focus was really on districts. Then for us to win districts go on the road and do that and be able to get down here. Just really proud of the guys."
