Hard Work Pays Off With 2-0 Away Win

Goals by second-year midfielder Jonah Langelotz and first-year winger Cole Johnson led CMU to their second win in as many matches, defeating 10-man Red River 2-0 on Saturday afternoon.

The home team was reduced to 10-men in the 28th minute when pesky CMU forward Takuro Mizuno forced John Kaspar to turn the ball over, allowing the striker a clear path to goal. With little choice but to commit a foul, the first-year Rebels defender chopped Mizuno down, resulting in a early exit and a cooly-taken Langelotz penalty to give the visitors the lead.

Kaspar’s red-card dismissal was one of seven cards given by the referee on the afternoon. The Rebels received five cautions in the match, while Jordon Zimmerly collected a caution for CMU late in the match as he and the Blazer defense anchored-down the goal to preserve their one-goal lead.

Moments before the final whistle, Johnson’s outstretched right foot directed Zimmerly’s cross behind Rebels goalkeeper Jacob Holestine to secure all-three points for the visitors and claim top-spot in the conference for CMU, at least for the time being.

Shining bright in the CMU goal was first-year Adam Bergen who collected the first clean-sheet of his college career.

Next on the schedule for the Blazers is a trip to Otterburne for a Sunday afternoon kick-off with the 1-0-0 Providence Freemen at 4pm.
