The College of New Jersey (9-4 overall) scored the game's first goal at 40:50 when Joseph Schneck (Mt. Laurel, NJ/Lenape) hit the goal on a pass from Brian Lindsey (Atco, NJ/Edgewood). With the clock running down, the Blue Jays (9-1 overall) tied the game with only 17:36 remaining in regulation time when Bryan Hoy (Beaver Springs, PA/West Snyder) scored on a penalty kick.
Etown goaltender Matt Gwilliam (Quakertown, PA/Quakertown) and New Jersey keeper Ryan Hayward (Danbury, CT/Danbury) each made four saves, although Etown outshot TCNJ 12-6.
