Men’s Soccer Floods Five Goals Past Les Rouges For First Win

Goals from Joel Kisabo (2), Ryan Jensen, Caleb Jutzi and Solace Janzen Kornelsen powered Men's Soccer to an impressive 5-1 victory on a soggy Saturday afternoon against the USB Rouges at St. Vital Memorial Park.

It took only six minutes for highly-touted rookie Joel Kisabo to open the scoring as he blasted the Blazers into a 1-0 lead when he jumped on a loose ball and connected to the bottom left corner of the USB goal from just inside the penalty area. Nine minutes later, Ryan Jensen made it 2-0 for the visitors when he converted from the penalty spot, giving CMU a commanding lead over the current leaders in the MCAC Men's Soccer standings.

Jensen and Kisabo would connect, scoring a third goal for the Blazers before halftime. The CMU captain delivered the perfect free-kick assist from 30 yards out to a leaping Kisabo who headed his team into complete control before the break.

As the team's returned to the pitch for the second half and the weather showed signs of improving, Jonathan Monsevula's cross on a CMU counter-attack was met by a sliding Caleb Jutzi and the halftime substitute scored on his first touch of the match, 4 minutes into the restart. Jutzi would be called on in a different way 8 minutes later when goalkeeper Reed Fitzgerald had to be removed from the match after a major collision with a USB attacker sidelined the Rosthern, Saskatchewan natver after an aerial challenge.

Jutzi would dawn the goalkeeper's gloves for the final 37 minutes of the match in Fitzgerald's absence, and the 6'3 second-year filled in adequately, allowing only one goal resulting from the MCAC's leading goal scorer, Derek Mains who converted from the penalty spot in the 75th minute.

CMU would manage a fifth goal as full-time approached and Solace Janzen Kornelsen scored his first MCAC goal, heading in a bouncing ball in the 84th minute of the match.

The Blazers 5-1 win gave CMU their first three-points of the young season, moving them into a tie with the Red River Rebels who had their match in Otterburne cancelled on Saturday against Providence. The other MCAC match scheduled in Brandon between the ACC Cougars and Brandon Bobcats was also postponed due to severe weather and wet field conditions. Make up dates for these matches will be announced by the conference later this week.
