CITRUS PARK -- Penalty kicks were all the rage during the final day of the Student Sports Invitational at Ed Radice Park on Monday.

Bloomingdale (10-1-1) needed them to win fifth place in the Elite bracket after blowing a three-goal lead against Lake Mary.

After the game ended in a 3-3 draw, the Bulls made all five of their penalty kicks in the shootout, including the winner by keeper Chris Sedlak.

Sedlak also turned away a Lake Mary penalty kick and was named to the all-tournament team.

Bloomingdale's only defeat of the tournament came to eventual Elite bracket champion Melbourne Central Catholic, which topped St. Francis (Calif.) 3-0.

Penalty kicks were a mixed blessing for Brandon, which fell 4-3 to Strake Jesuit in a third-place, Premier bracket shootout after tying the game 1-1 late in regulation on a penalty kick by Michael Guess.

Brandon (9-1-1) had turned some heads by making it to the semifinals before falling 5-0 Santa Margarita Catholic (Calif.) earlier in the day.

A late penalty kick doomed Clearwater Central Catholic, which was fighting for fifth place in the Premier bracket.

The Marauders (6-3-4) went down 2-0 against St. Augustine Nease before Teddy Anderson scored his eighth goal of the tournament, and Joey Ijjas tied it at 2-2 before halftime.

CCC gave up the winning goal after a foul in the box in the second half.

Santa Margarita went on to win the Premier bracket 4-0 over Winter Park.
