NEW BERN -- Hayley Ward converted a breakaway in the 56th minute, and The Epiphany School shut out Wayne Country Day, 1-0, on Friday afternoon.

It was the Coastal Plains Independent 1-A Conference regular-season finale for both teams. The Chargers (12-6-0 overall) endured their first shutout loss of the season.

"It was a defensive battle that was physical from start to finish," WCDS head coach Paul Casey said. "Both teams knew the importance of today's game in playoff seeding. The fact that we beat them 2-1 earlier in the season was obviously in their minds as well."
