ELIZABETHTOWN COLLEGE MEN'S SOCCER
Wednesday, September 2, 1998

OSWALD SCORES THE "BRONZE" GOAL AS ETOWN EDGES FRANKLIN AND MARSHALL, 1-0, IN OVERTIME OPENER

ELIZABETHTOWN, Pa. --- Tim Oswald took a pass from Bryan Hoy and netted the golden goal in the second minute of sudden death overtime to lift Elizabethtown past Franklin and Marshall, 1-0, in the 1998 season opener for both squads.  The goal was the first of Oswald's varsity career.

With the win, the Blue Jays (1-0) captured the Smith-Herr Bronze Boot, the trophy awarded to the winner of the annual intra-country showdown.  Etown has won the last ten contests in the Boot series and is 17-3-2 against F&M since the award was created in 1977.

Etown outshot F&M 15-8 on the afternoon, led by Wyeth Raws, who fired off a team-high five shots.  Scott Kozub led the Dips with four shots, including a pair of excellent scoring chances in the second half.

With the win, the Blue Jays opened their season with a victory for the first time since 1995.  Etown's next win will be the 600th in program history.

The Jays return to action on Saturday, September 5 against Greensboro College in the first round of the Roanoke College Domino's Classic.  Game time is 1 p.m.
