The Cumberland Valley Christian Blazers blitzed New Life with seven goals en route to a 7-0 victory Tuesday in a Mason-Dixon Christian Conference girls soccer game.
Kyleigh Teal registered a hat trick and added an assist for the Blazers (3-3, 3-3 MDCC), and Ryleigh Timmons added a pair of goals and an assist.
“It was a fun night to play and coach soccer,” Blazers coach Paul Lundy said. “The weather was great and the goals were plentiful for us. The combination of Ryleigh and Kyleigh combined for five goals and two assists. The midfield is starting to click, and that unit had its best game of the season.”
Also for the Blazers, Marlee Stake contributed a goal and an assist, Laurel Reitz scored a goal, and Maddie Eberly and Regan Bard had assists.
“Marlee Stake had a breakout night,” Lundy said. “Marlee’s goal was by far one of the prettiest in the last few years for us. Maddie Eberly lofted a perfect cross into the box, and Marlee one-touched it out of the air into the net. Laurel’s goal was set up by a monster throw-in from near midfield by Regan Bard. The ball rolled untouched into the box, and Laurel beat a defender and popped it into the net.”
The Blazers held advantages of 12-2 in shots and 6-3 in corner kicks. Jalen Moats posted the shutout by making a pair of saves, and Keagan Yarboro and Mackenzie Sites also spent time in goal.
“I am proud of the defensive effort,” Lundy said. “It was Jalen Moats’ first shutout of the year, and we have now given up only seven goals in six games. Maddie Eberly has anchored that unit this week with Hunter Timmons on the senior trip, and she is emerging as one of the best defenders in the conference.”
