Bruised Blazers Drop 2-1 Result in Thunder Bay

With a winner already decided, CMU and Confederation took the field on Sunday morning in the final match of the Sportop Invitational in Thunder Bay to decide second-place.

The first forty-five minutes were highlighted by three hit posts, one missed penalty and eventually a goal, all by the ThunderHawks leaving the Blazers gasping their breath at the fortune of escaping the half trailing by only a goal.

Leading CMU scorer Maraleigh Short would draw her team level five minutes into the restart, when her attempt at goal deflected off a defender and past the goalkeeper.

Despite the courageous defending efforts of Rianna Isaak, Sylvie Kroeker and the new face in goal for CMU, Vanessa Kornelson, the Blazers lost hold of their grip on a point mid-way through the half when the ThunderHawks captured the match and a 2-1 lead.

The break is short for the Blazers. They return to MCAC action this Wednesday evening when they host the undefeated Winnipeg Wesmen who sit alone atop the table. The match will take place at the Winnipeg Soccer Complex at 6 PM.
