It came down to penalty kicks, as Academic Magnet's boys' soccer team bested St. Joseph's, 4-3, for the S.C. 2A State Championship on Friday.

After both teams' defenses orchestrated shutouts through regulation and sudden death overtime, the teams went to penalty kicks.

Benji Vasquez made three saves, and Bryan Bracy nailed the game-winning PK to seal the win and the state title for AcMag.
