Blazers' Rally Sinks Mounts

Ephrata was seven minutes away from walking out of Manheim Central’s Elden Rettew Field with a stolen victory in the L-L League boys soccer tournament semifinals on Tuesday night when the fusillade the Mounts had been dodging from Lancaster Mennonite all evening finally landed.
