ELIZABETHTOWN COLLEGE MEN'S SOCCER

ETOWN BREAKS CONSECUTIVE SHUTOUT RECORD WITH EIGHT IN A ROW IN 5-0 BLASTING OF WIDENER

CHESTER, Pa. --- The 1999 Blue Jays' defensive prowess has now reached legendary proportions.

Wednesday's 5-0 road shutout of Widener was the team's eighth consecutive shutout victory, which shattered the previous program record of seven, set in 1984 and tied in 1996. Thus far this season, Elizabethtown (14-0-1 overall, 4-0-1 MAC Commonwealth) has allowed only three goals in 15 games. The team's goals against average of 0.19 is the best in the nation.

The win was also the 299th of Elizabethtown head coach Skip Roderick's career, who is set to reach the 300-win mark in only his 17th season at the helm.
Brent Conover (Gettysburg, PA/Gettysburg) scored the opening goal for the Blue Jays at 5:36 into the game. Later goals by Adam Dively (Beaver Springs, PA/West Snyder) and Dominic Marano (New Hope, PA/Solebury School) made the score 3-0 in Etown's favor by halftime.

Both goals of the second half were scored by Brad Confer (Lancaster, PA/Manheim Township).

Goaltender Doug Timm (Wilmington, DE/McKean) made four saves to preserve the Blue Jays' 12th shutout of 1999.

The Blue Jays will try to garner Roderick's 300th win and stretch their shutout streak to nine Saturday, October 23 at home against Wilkes. Game time is noon.
