Blazers roll in 2nd half to beat Grace

HAGERSTOWN, Md. – The Cumberland Valley Christian Blazers broke away after a scoreless first half and defeated Grace Academy 4-0 Thursday in a Mason Dixon Christian Conference boys soccer game.

“We are improving every game,” Blazers coach Stan Hott said. “This was our best defensive game. Preston “Peddy” Hammond held our defense together and kept Grace from getting any good looks at the goal. Mario Wiesman orchestrated our offense. He got the boys moving and talking and pulled their defense apart.”

Wiesman’s goal got the Blazers (3-1-1, 3-1 MDCC) on the scoreboard early in the second half. Gage Brookens followed with a pair of goals, including one after Grace’s goalkeeper had blocked a penalty kick. Nollin Egolf added the final goal.

Brookens, Titus Hott, Finlay Smith and Aaron Minnier had the assists.

Blazers keeper Gabe Beckering kept Grace (2-2-1 MDCC) at bay by making seven saves.
