BOYS SOCCER: Thursday's roundup
MCCONNELLSBURG 6, CUMB. VALLEY CHRISTIAN 1 >> After allowing Cumberland Valley Christian to score early in the first half, McConnellsburg kicked things into high gear for a non-league victory.
The Spartans were led by senior Jake Boehme who scored a hat trick in the win.
"We played a terrible first half," McConnellsburg coach Cory Houck said. "That was the first game we've played all year that we didn't score first, but we came out and played a much better second half, but it was definitely not our best game."
Despite a slow start McConnellsburg (14-1) had 20 shots and forced CVC keeper Justin Mummert to make 11 saves.
Joel Vandersleen had the lone goal of the game for the Blazers (5-14).
