Blazers thump Broadfording

The Cumberland Valley Christian Blazers pounded in six first-half goals en route to an 8-0 victory over Broadfording on Friday in a Mason-Dixon Christian Conference girls soccer game.

“Our defense not only pitched a shutout on the scoreboard, but we didn’t allow a shot on goal and only one corner for the match,” Blazers coach Paul Lundy said. “The biggest improvement was in the midfield this week and especially tonight. We dominated possession and played mostly on the BCA half of the field. That unit moved the ball very well tonight and constantly had us in a position to score.”

Ryleigh Timmons started the scoring nine minutes into the game, and three minutes later, Kyleigh Teal scored on an assist from Mackenzie Sites. Kendra Bard, Timmons, Teal and Laurel Reitz rounded out the first-half scoring with unassisted goals. Regan Bard and Molly Buchanan punched in second-half goals for the Blazers (4-3, 4-3 MDCC).

“We finished a great (3-0) week on a high note,” Lundy said. “Three freshmen (Bard, Bard and Buchanan) all notched their first goals of their varsity career. Kyleigh, Ryleigh and Laurel were all over the place again on the stat sheet. In the second half we really moved people around and had our defenders playing up on offense. It was one of those nights where no matter what we did, it seemed to work. Hopefully we can continue this momentum going forward.”

The Blazers led in shots 13-0 and corner kicks 5-1. Jalen Moats, Keagan Yarboro and Sites divided the goalkeeping duties.
