Boys Soccer: Shootout win lifts Thomas Jefferson into quarterfinals

Written by Brad Everett on .

When a winner of a WPIAL playoff game isn't decided after two overtime periods, the game goes to a shootout.

In that shootout, the team that nets the most goals in their five attempts is declared the winner.

No. 2 seed Thomas Jefferson and No. 15 Blackhawk needed even more than that to decide the outcome of their Class 3A first-round game.

You would be hard pressed to find a more exciting opening-round game than the one that took place at Thomas Jefferson between the host Jaguars and Blackhawk. The Jaguars edged the Cougars, 1-0, courtesy of an 8-7 advantage in a penalty-kick shootout.
