Burkhart's hat trick lifts Eagles past Blazers

BIRDSBORO - Exeter's Eric Burkhart recorded a hat trick, including the game-winner in overtime, to lift the Eagles to a 3-2 win over division-rival Daniel Boone on Tuesday.

Burkhart's first two goals came in the first half. One was off an assist from Cody Hart. The other was a header off a corner-kick from Tristan Watts.

But early in the second half, the Blazers came alive. Andrew Templin sent a free kick into the box and Jaxson Burns headed it home to make it a 2-1 game.

Three minutes later, Jason Burns buried a header off a throw-in from Brenden Valverde to tie the game at 2 and, eventually, send the game into overtime.

In the first overtime period, Sam Feehrer got the ball in the box and chipped it over a few defenders before eventually finding Burkhart on the goal line for the open net game-winner.

Exeter (7-0, 10-3) clinched the Berks I title. Daniel Boone (5-3, 9-4-1)has just two divisional contests left next week before the county tournament.
