The Neligh Juniors' run came to an end Tuesday night at the hands of top-seeded Creighton, which won back-to-back games to win the district title.
After defeating Creighton earlier in the tournament, Neligh dropped two straight in the Class C, Area 1 district championship.
Creighton won 6-2 in the early game in Ainsworth to hand Neligh it's first loss of the district and force a deciding winner-take-all championship game.
Creighton kept the momentum and won 11-1 thanks to a 10-run rule in the sixth inning to seal the title and qualify for state.
Damon Arehart was the lone Neligh batter to score. He crossed home plate thanks to a double from Jordon Murray.
