Charlotte beat Creighton in penalty kicks Friday night to advance to the NCAA men's soccer final for the first time.

The 49ers (17-4-3) and Bluejays (21-3) failed to score in
regulation and both of the 10-minute overtime sessions. But
Charlotte converted each of its four penalty kicks, compared to one
for Creighton.

Charlotte will face either top-seeded North Carolina or UCLA in
the final.

Charlotte pulled starting goalie Klay Davis for the penalty
kicks and replaced him with 6-foot-3 Gavin Dawson, who blocked one
shot. Creighton (21-3) also missed a shot high.

Isaac Cowles had the winning shot, blasting the ball to the
right of Creighton goalkeeper Brian Holt.

The Bluejays had won 11 consecutive games.
