Blazers Topped By Providence in 4-1 Loss

Norvin Campos’ two goals in the opening 20 minutes gave Providence University College the start they needed to top CMU 4-1 on Sunday afternoon in Otterburne.

The third-year forward struck first on 12 minutes when a perfectly placed through-ball sent the Freemen speedster in behind the CMU defence, slotting the ball past goalkeeper Blayne Stobbe.

After a second Campos tally, defender Jordon Zimmerly pounded the Blazers back into the match on 34 minutes, resulting from a free-kick of the right foot of Jonah Langelotz that left an unclaimed ball bouncing inside the six-yard box.

Minutes before the half-time whistle, Providence restored their two goal lead when CMU defender Michael Breton‘s arm contacted the ball inside the penalty area. Freemen captain Mario Giesbrecht was the beneficiary who calmly made the score 3-1 for the home team as the squads took respite.

Speedy Providence winger Brendan Wiens showed pace and power and completed the matches scoring before 46 minutes, when two passes after the teams restarted, he burst through the CMU midfield and blasted a low shot past an outreached Stobbe.

The loss was the first of the season for the Blazers and allowed Providence back into top-spot in the conference as they make plans to host the University of St-Boniface next weekend, the conference only other remaining undefeated side. Les Rouges edged Red River 3-2 on Sunday afternoon in the only other MCAC men’s match.

CMU will begin preparation for Northern Ontario opponents when they travel to Thunder Bay to take part in the second-annual SportTop invitational against Confederation College, Lakehead University and Thunder Bay Rainbow this Saturday and Sunday.
