Junior Matt Diller (Chambersburg, PA/Mercersburg Academy) and senior George Severini (Havertown, PA/Haverford) added goals for the Blue Jays (14-5 overall), who advanced to their fifth consecutive Commonwealth Conference championship match on Saturday against Messiah College, a 4-0 winner over Albright College in Wednesday's other semifinal game.

Elizabethtown took a 1-0 lead just 2:42 into the contest as Diller scored his 11th goal of the season off assists by Bunting and senior Mike Helsel (Palmyra, PA/Palmyra).

Bunting tallied his second goal of the year at 38:05 as he converted following a throw-in by first-year student Tony Pacella (Sinking Spring, PA/Wilson) to give the Blue Jays a 2-0 lead entering halftime.

In the second half, Severini closed out the scoring at 78:53 with his team-best 15th goal of the season on an assist by senior Brian Raveling (Voorhees, NJ/Eastern Regional).

The Blue Jays were outshot by the Warriors (13-5-1 overall) 15-11 while Lycoming also held a 6-2 edge in corner kicks.

Junior Jeff Mullen (Horsham, PA/Hatboro-Horsham) earned his ninth shutout of the season by making nine saves for the Blue Jays, while Ryan Humphreys tallied five stops for the Warriors.
