Fog rolled in before halftime of the Subway All-Star Soccer Game Thursday night.
With a a storm was on its way, officials shortened the game to get ahead of the threatening weather.
Halftime became a water break and 20 minutes was trimmed off the second half.
Scoreless after regulation, the game was decided by penalty kicks.
Navarre’s Mason Fralick nailed one of the penalty kicks that evened the score at 2-2. The East went on to win it 3-2 over the West.
