Bradley University reserve forward Aaron Birk blasted a shot from the top of the penalty area in the 47th minute and the laser found the top right corner for the game’s only goal as the Braves (13-6-2) earned a 1-0 win against Missouri State (11-5-2) in the 2013 Missouri Valley Conference Men’s Soccer Championship Sunday evening at Shea Stadium. Bradley claims its third MVC Tournament title and secures its seventh appearance in the NCAA Tournament. The start of the championship game was delayed three hours, the result of severe weather that rocked Central Illinois. Bradley allowed only three shots on goal and senior keeper Brian Billings made all three saves to earn the shutout and capture MVC Tournament MVP honors. Bradley will face a familiar foe when the Braves (13-6-2) open their seventh NCAA Division I Men’s Soccer Championship Thursday at Northwestern (10-7-3) in a 7 p.m. first-round game at Lakeside Field.
