King George broke the Fauquier softball team's nine-game winning streak and their undefeated run in Conference 22 by beating the Falcons, 4-2, Monday at home.
King George had only four hits in the game but took a 4-1 lead in the bottom of the third inning with a Shelby King single, an error, a Monica Brandis sacrifice fly and an Ashleigh Nalls three-run home run.
Fauquier's record fell to 14-4 and it finished conference play at 9-1 to ensure at least a share of the regular season championship. King George (8-1) would tie for the district lead with a win over Liberty this week.
Jessie Goodwin led the Falcons with two RBIs on 2-for-4 hitting while Leann Brown went 2-for-4 with a run and a stolen base.
Fauquier pitcher Tess Miller took the loss despite allowing four unearned runs on four hits and two walks while striking out three over six innings.
