After a scoreless first half, the Cumberland Valley Christian Blazers broke away from Heritage and defeated the Eagles 4-1 Tuesday in their season-opening Mason Dixon Christian Conference boys soccer game.
The Blazers dominated play throughout the game but could not break through against Heritage until Mario Wiesman opened the scoring with the first of his three goals early in the second half. Just a few minutes later, Wiesman converted a penalty kick.
Wiesman and Landon Kellogg added the final two goals. Kellogg, Gage Brookens, Nollin Egolf and Jadon Jetnarayan notched assists for the Blazers, who were in Heritage’s end of the field for most of the game.
“Great first league game,” Blazers coach Stan Hott said. “We are still getting the chemistry worked out. Gage Brookens, player of the game who has not played in the past two years, came in and is making a significant impact. He is still a little rusty with his ball skills, but he is cleaning them up quickly. He made the other team adjust their game, allowing us to open up ours. I am excited to see what this team can accomplish once we work out a few of the bugs.”
Goalkeeper Gabe Beckering made five saves.
