The Owen County High School boys soccer team reached the 31st District finals last year where they eventually lost to Carroll County High School.
A return trip was not in the cards this season.
The Rebels had the difficult task of playing Henry County High School in the semifinals on Oct. 15 on their home field in New Castle.
The Wildcats had knocked off the Rebels twice during the regular season both in shutout fashion.
On Oct. 15, Owen County would score three times but it would not be enough as the Wildcats also scored three times to force overtime.
The game would remain scoreless in the extra session to send the game to penalty kicks. Henry County would outscore Owen County on the penalty kicks and would be credited with the 4-3 win.
The loss denied the Rebels a second-straight trip the 31st District championship game and the Eighth Region Tournament.
