    if a game is won 4-2 on penalty kicks in high school, what's the official final score?

    Here's what I've heard...

    If the game is tied 1-1 before PKs, the winner of the PKs is awarded one goal, making the final score 2-1. But you're dealing with HS soccer, so who knows.

    Someone please correct me if I'm wrong.

    Regular season game they go to PKs? I've always understood the game remains a tie, but a team advances to the next round on PKs. I think, if it just a regular game that for some reason goes to PKs, Ryan is correct.

    But I don't know any of it for sure.

    "The game ended in a 0-0 tie after regulation and two overtimes. Team A advances on penalty kicks, 4-2."

    We've had this discussion before, and it was concluded that different high school associations will have their own rules on this.

    That's the perfect way to write it.

    What I've seen is that only regular season tournament games use a shootout. In pool play you get 3 points for a regulation win, 2 for a shootout win, 1 for a shootout loss and none for a regulation loss to try and avoid teams being tied on points.

    Once it gets to the knockout rounds it's used as normal to determine who advances. However, in both instances, the team that lost the shootout gets to count it as a tie in their record.

    There are high school associations that use pool play?
  12. In Texas, it's up to individual districts to determine whether to break regular-season ties. So it's a mixed bag: some use the shootout method that MLS used years ago, some use overtime, some use a combination, some call a tie a tie. Moddy's description of how to write it is spot on. It can be real hard to boil down to a scoreline, however.
