RADFORD, Va. – Behind two goals in the first 19 minutes of the match, Blacksburg was able to hoist its 12th Group AA Boys' Soccer state championship Sunday morning following a 3-0 triumph over E.C. Glass at Radford University's Patrick D. Cupp Stadium as part of the 2013 VHSL Spring Jubilee.
Shane Mecham (9th) and Sebi Brown (19th) combined for the Bruins' early strikes. Blacksburg took the two-goal advantage into break.
Garland Smith, a Radford University signee, banged home a header goal in the 71st minute off a cross from Mitchell Williams. It was the Bruins' fifth state title in the past nine years and first since 2010.
