Five Goals Brings CMU Home Win

Rodger Toews scored three goals on Saturday night to push CMU to a 5-0 win over the University of St-Boniface in MCAC league action.

The early scoring chances belonged to the home team, despite the fact that the Voyageurs held the majority of the possession. Second-year midfielder Sean Dyck screamed a volley just wide of the St-Boniface goal on 12 minutes and moments later Jonah Langelotz broke free of the defense but was unable to hit the target.

Toews put the Blazers in the lead on 14 minutes from the penalty spot, after Dyck forced a defender to take him to ground in the area. The home team would collect their second before half-time. Skipper Chris Epp Tiessen rocketed a right-footed volley past goalkeeper Yassine Duhinou in the 42nd minute on a play set up by Langelotz.

With a 2-0 lead, the yellow-shirt entered the second half with their tails up. Moments from the restart Toews collected his brace on a powerful header from first-year forward J. P. Hernandez‘s delivery. On 50 minutes left-back Simon Dueck darted down the wing and pounded the Blazers ahead by four goals.

At the 64 minute mark, before exiting the game, Toews’ powerful right foot found the target from the top of the box making him CMU’s hat-trick hero. Goalkeeper Blayne Stobbe preserved a clean sheet for the Blazers with a toe-save in the final minutes.

The next action for the Blazers comes Saturday, September 24 when they travel north on route 90 to Red River College to welcome the Rebels to the MCAC. Kick-off time is slated for 3:00 pm.
