Blazers pin 7-0 defeat on Faith

MARTINSBUG, W. Va. – The Cumberland Valley Christian Blazers broke out of their early season scoring slump and handed Faith Christian a 7-0 defeat Friday in a Mason-Dixon Christian Conference boys soccer game.

Reigning MDCC most valuable player Kenneth Hott, held to one goal during the Blazers’ first three games, erupted for four goals against Faith. Hott also added a pair of assists for the Blazers, who had scored only three goals coming into the game.

“We played well,” Blazers coach Stan Hott said. “Kenneth finally was able to get into game mode and set up several scoring opportunities and also get a hat trick plus one.”

Ryan Winters, Max Crawford and David Jeong also scored goals for the Blazers (1-2-1, 1-1-1 MDCC). Isaac Kauffeldt registered three assists, while Josh Rowe and Elijah Randolph each contributed one assist.

Goalkeeper Jack Gabler made 11 saves in the Blazers’ shutout.

“Our defensive backs Caleb Eckert and Blaine Minnier played very well in front of Jack, helping to secure our first shutout of the season,” Stan Hott said.
