Brian Goodwin scored 14 of his 24 points in the second half to lead Belgrade-Brooten-Elrosa past Rushford Peterson 52-40 in the Minnesota 1A state championship game on Saturday.

After blowing an early double-digit lead, the top-ranked Jaguars (31-1) won their second state title in three years thanks to Goodwin's poise in the final 10 minutes. Down 34-30 with 10:33 to play, Goodwin fueled a 13-5 game-deciding run that included seven-consecutive free throws.

Alex Vix led the third-ranked Trojans (31-2) with 12 points and Cole Kingsley added 11. The Trojans, last year's third-place finisher, played for their third overall state title and second as Rushford-Peterson.

Kingsley and Vix led a Rushford-Peterson rally with eight points apiece in the first half to put the Trojans up 25-21 at halftime.
