A late rally was not enough as the Chelsea girls' soccer team saw its season end with a 2-1 loss to SEC White champion Pinckney in the D2 district semifinals Tuesday night.
It was the third matchup between the team with the team battling to a 1-1 draw and Pinckney winning late in the season to clinch the White title.

The Pirates would strike again seven minutes in to the second half to make it 2-0 forcing the Bulldogs into an all-out attack.
Chelsea would find the net when Sophie Mitchell struck for the Bulldogs with nine minutes left to cut the lead to 2-1.
The Bulldogs would continue to put the pressure on but could not get the equalizer as the Pirates held on for the win.
Chelsea's season ends with 10-5-3 overall record and finished 7-1-2 in the SEC White.
