COLUMBUS, Ohio -- After 110 minutes and no score, the Ohio Division I boys' soccer match featuring FAB 50 No. 1 St. Ignatius (Cleveland, Ohio) and No. 4 Lincoln (Gahanna, Ohio) went to penalty kicks.

And it took all 10 kicks to produce a winner.

Wil Trapp converted his penalty kick to the lower left to lift Lincoln to a 4-3 shootout victory, ending St. Ignatius' 31-match win streak, its 43-match undefeated streak and its stay at No. 1.

The result will likely leave St. Thomas Aquinas (Overland Park, Kan.) as the FAB 50 No. 1 when the next rankings are released Tuesday.

ESPN RISE will have player reaction from Lincoln posted Saturday afternoon.

The following is a list of past FAB 50 No. 1 teams:

2008: Brentwood (Brentwood, N.Y.)
2007: Broughton (Raleigh, N.C.)
