ELIZABETHTOWN COLLEGE MEN'S SOCCER
ETOWN BLANKS MANCHESTER, 3-0, IN FIRST ROUND OF BLUE JAY CLASSIC TOURNAMENT; URSINUS ALSO WINS
ELIZABETHTOWN, Pa. --- The Blue Jays cruised past Manchester (IN) in the first round of the Blue Jay Classic Men's Soccer Tournament Saturday, winning 3-0. Goaltenders Doug Timm (Wilmington, DE/McKean) and Matt Gwilliam (Quakertown, PA/Quakertown) combined on the shutout for Elizabethtown.
Elizabethtown (3-0-1) opened the scoring early when freshman Brad Confer (Lancaster, PA/Manheim Township) hit the upper corner of Manchester's goal just three minutes into the game. It was the first goal of Confer's collegiate career. Tim Oswald (Philadelphia, PA/Father Judge) followed with another goal four minutes later in a blast off the corner. Oswald made it a pair of goals for the day when he headed the ball in at 56:28. Brian Hoy (Beaver Springs, PA/West Snyder) had two assists in the game.
The game also marked the meeting of two Elizabethtown alums as head coaches. The Blue Jays are coached by Skip Roderick, a 1974 Elizabethtown graduate, and the Manchester Spartans (2-2) are coached by David Good, a member of Elizabethtown's class of 1972.
In the opening game of the tournament, Ursinus (2-3) staged a dramatic come-from-behind, 3-2, victory over King's (2-2). A pair of goals put the King's squad ahead 2-0 by the first minute of the second period. The Bears fought back, scoring a goal at 65 minutes into the game and adding two more in the final ten minutes to win.
King's will play Manchester in the third-place game of the Blue Jay Classic at 1:00 p.m. Sunday. Elizabethtown will square off against Ursinus for the tournament title at 3:00 p.m.
