Blazers hold off Faith, 3-2

The Cumberland Valley Christian Blazers built a 3-0 lead and then held off a late charge by Faith Christian to come away with a 3-2 victory Tuesday in a Mason Dixon Christian Conference boys soccer game.

The Blazers (9-3-1, 7-2 MDCC) grabbed an early lead when Nollin Egolf scored to lift the team to a 1-0 halftime edge.

In the second half, Finlay Smith kicked in a goal to make it 2-0, and then Titus Hott drilled in a shot for the 3-0 advantage. Faith (3-5-1 MDCC) responded with a pair of late goals, including one in the final minutes, to make things deceptively close.

“We controlled the game but let our mistakes turn into goals,” Blazers coach Stan Hott said. “We keep getting better. Our passes are well timed and weighted. We need to put together a full game.”

Landon Kellogg contributed two assists, and Sam Hepler added one assist. Goalkeeper Gabe Beckering made seven saves.

On Monday, the Blazers earned a 4-3 victory at Carroll Christian in Westminster, Md.
