Injuries did little to stop the run The Christian Academy boys soccer team is on. Brit Haseltine made sure of that.
Haseltine recorded a hat trick, two of the markers off assists from Robbie Needs, to help the Crusaders finish off a 3-0 win over King's Christian Friday and earn the school's first ever undefeated season in the Tri-State Christian Conference.
Even without All-Delco Evan Needs, the Crusaders (15-1, 14-0) still breezed by King's, shutting them out thanks to Joseph Opdenaker's five saves in goal and stellar defense from Brandon Burns. Robbie Needs and Matt Crockett stepped up to fill the midfield void for the Crusaders, who had already clinched the top seed in the league playoffs, starting next week.
In the Inter-Ac:
Episcopal Academy 1, Penn Charter 0: Joshua Wilson scored for the third straight game to give the Churchmen their first win in league play.
Matt Freese made the goal stand up with two saves for his fifth shutout of the season, second against the Quakers, for EA (6-7-4, 1-4-1).
