The Austin boys soccer team had its historic season come to an end as it tied Orono (16-4-2 overall) 0-0 in the Minnesota Class A state third place game in US Bank Stadium in Minneapolis Tuesday.

The game was played just 15 hours after the Packers (18-1-3 overall) were knocked out of state title contention in a 4-3 overtime loss to Saint Thomas Academy in the semifinals.

Josh Brehmer had 13 saves for Austin against Orono and the Packers had five shots on goal.

The Packers finished with the season with their best record in school history, their highest finish in school history and their first Big Nine title in school history.
