TROY, Mich. (AP) - The Troy Athens boys soccer team has advanced to the state semifinals after winning a shootout that was played again due to an official’s error last week.

Athens scored twice Tuesday on penalty kicks and defeated Macomb Dakota. In an extraordinary step, the Michigan High School Athletic Association had ordered both teams back to the field, four days after the regional final.

Athens was declared the winner last Friday, but that result was overturned. The MHSAA said officials had wrongly penalized Dakota for the order of its shooters.

The Troy school district said the “re-do” was an “injustice.”
