First year club RVA FC of Richmond, VA has been crowned the 2013 NPSL Champions with a 2-0 victory over the Sonoma County Sol in front of almost 1,500 at Sports Backers Stadium.
Heading into the championship both teams had been undefeated. The Sol were looking to add a second star while RVA were gunning for their first. The match featured entertaining end-to-end action, and the result was in contention until the final minutes.
RVAâ€™s Josh Grant put the home team ahead in the 18th minute with a 30 yard strike and Manel Bell added an insurance goal in the 88th to prevent any last minute heroics from the Sol. The Sol saw what would have been the equalizer clank off the post in the 67th minute, and despite several quality chances would get no closer.
Final Score: RVA 2 Sonoma County 0
