Below is the resolution from the NCHSAA & it's BOD for the "No Ties in Soccer Issue":
Special action was taken by the NCHSAA Board of Directors relative tie games in soccer. Below will be the new tie game procedure for soccer in 2018-19.
4.8.1 (m) Tie Games: Ties must be broken in all conference matches, which would include a conference tournament if one is held. If a tie score exists at the end of regulation play during each conference varsity game, there will be two, complete five (5)-minute overtime periods--not sudden victory. If the score is still tied at the conclusion of the two five (5)-minute overtime periods, the tie will be broken by kicks from the penalty mark.
1. All regular season, non-conference games that are tied at the end of regulation will result in a tie.
2. In non-conference tournament play and NCHSAA Playoffs, tied games must be resolved by the NFHS Tie-Breaking Procedure, and those decisions count in a team’s won-loss record. One goal is added to the winning team’s score, and an asterisk may be placed by the team advancing to indicate advancement was the result of the progression format.
3. Junior varsity teams do not play overtime periods
