Zane Christenson is on a roll.
Just days after Christenson, a Blue Springs South graduate now toiling for Metropolitan Community College-Blue River, led the Trail Blazers to a 4-2 win on the road at Coffeyville (Kan.) Community College, he was back at it Monday against the Graceland (Iowa) University reserves.
Christenson netted two goals and two assists in a 5-0 home win over Graceland. Justin Gates added two goals and Steven Long of Raytown added a goal and an assist.
“It was a good victory to have,” MCC-Blue River head coach Dave Owens said. “It was a nice victory. It was good for us to work on some things.”
Against Coffeyville, Christenson put his team up 2-0 with two first-half goals and added a penalty kick goal in the 80th minute to complete the hat trick and help stop a four-game losing streak for the Trail Blazers.
Lee’s Summit North graduate Josh Crooks tallied Blue River’s other goal.
“We finally had the scoring line to match the way we’ve been playing,” Owens said. “Today we finally put together a complete game and came away with a victory.”
MCC-BLUE RIVER WOMEN SOARING: Blue Springs South graduate Courtney Codilla scored twice and another former Jaguar, Ashley Killian, added three assists to lead the Blue River women’s team to a 7-0 win Thursday over Coffeyville.
Catherine Barrera added two goals, Jessica Satterfield (Lee’s Summit West) scored once, as did Kirsten Miller and Ceci Perez. Jessica Brumble, Truman grad Shelbi Beeman, Abby Bailey (Lee’s Summit) and Liz Risko also added assists for the Trail Blazers, who improved to 5-1 after the win.
“We uniquely scored all seven goals in the second half,” Blue River head coach Brad Childers said. “It kind of kept coming.”
