It looked like the Ohio Division I boys soccer state championship game was going to come down to penalty kicks, but St. Ignatius junior striker Nolan Spicer’s left-footed laser into the lower-right corner of the net put a sudden end to Centerville’s hopes in overtime.

St. Ignatius won its third straight boys soccer state championship Saturday night at Lower.com Field in Columbus with a 2-1 win over Centerville, with Spicer’s winning goal coming with 5:55 left in sudden-death overtime.

Josip Rimac opened the scoring for the Wildcats, and the Elks answered in the second half with a goal from Colin Gottron.

Spicer committed last month to continue his soccer career at Notre Dame in 2023.
