It is likely the ignition coil has failed. Do you have a spark tester to check for spark?

If you buy one they are fairly cheap and it goes inline with the spark plug to the wire and will light up if you have spark. Another way to check for spark is to remove the spark plug and leave it attached to the wire and rest the electrode up against something metal like the engine cylinder head. THen crank the engine over and you should be able to see the spark.
