The Blue Jays carried a 2-0 lead as Michael Terry (Beech Creek, PA/Central Mountain) also scored his first goal of the season at 30:30 when he fired a defensive deflection from a previous Etown shot into the goal.

At 68:57, Etown took a 3-1 lead as Terry scored his second goal of the game, this time off a long pass by Josh Hoffman (Schaefferstown, PA/ELCO). At 78:52, Etown went up 4-1 as first-year student Matt Diller (Chambersburg, PA/ Mercersburg Academy) scored his first collegiate goal off another Healy assist.
First-year student Jeff Mullen (Horsham, PA/Hatboro-Horsham) made his collegiate debut in the Etown goal in the game’s final nine minutes and made the Blue Jays’ only save of the game.
