COLUMBIANA - It's said that all good things must come to an end, and for the Bristol boys basketball team, that end came on Monday.
Columbiana snapped the Panthers' 30-game regular season winning streak with a 40-37 victory in a non-conference clash. The run officially came to an end when Johnny Simcox's desperation 3-pointer fell short at the buzzer.
Bristol (7-1) took a 13-7 lead after the first quarter, but the Clippers (4-3) struck back and tied it by halftime. Columbiana led throughout the second half, clinching the win with a big fourth quarter by Dylan Ferraro, who registered a game-high 14 points. He scored six of the team's eight points in the final period.
The Panthers, who went 22-0 last year, hadn't lost since a defeat to Mathews in February of the 2012 regular season.
Brandon Lee was the only Bristol player to reach double figures with 12. The Clippers erased the early deficit by outscoring the Panthers, 14-8, in the second quarter. Dalton Miller recorded all five of his points in the quarter.
Bristol tries to regroup against Bloomfield on Friday.
