For the second time, the Nandua Warriors are the Virginia Soccer State Champions, after winning handily Wednesday evening in Onley 6-1 over the Graham High School G-men.
Graham got on the board first after a shot on goal deflected off a Nandua defender and rolled into the net.
However, after being down 0-1 early, Nandua scored 6 unanswered on their way to the blow out win.
Junior Odin Bolster had a hat trick, scoring three goals alone. Next was sophomore Son Joseph who added two. Bryan Tinoco’s goal was the first scored for the Warriors.
The G-men had a difficult time getting shots on goal against the stout Warrior defense.
Coach Paul Nolz described what it felt like winning his second State Championship:
The Nandua Warriors won their first soccer State Championship in 2003. They also won the Virginia State Basketball Championship the same year.
