Tucker McCoy was the only Spotswood player in double figures with 11 points. Hyrum Weiler chipped in 9 points as the only other Blazer to score more than 5 points.
The Blazers used an 8-0 run over the end of the second quarter and the beginning of the third quarter to cut the gap to 10 in the second half, but Brunswick only allowed 9 more points the entire game, cruising to a 25 point win.
Spotswood shot just 8 free throws in the contest, making only 2 shots from the line. Brunswick was 13-22 from the free throw line.

This is Brunswick's sixth state championship in program history.
