LAKEWOOD, N.J. --- Saturday was an important day for Etown women's soccer for two reasons, as the Blue Jays defeated Georgian Court 3-2 to finish the regular season 12-6-1, and as Moravian's 1-0 upset of Messiah threw the highest seed of the Commonwealth Conference tournament to Elizabethtown.

Elizabethtown's goal scorers against Georgian Court included Dina Jingoli (Morrisville, PA/Notre Dame, NJ), Kierstin Rowe (Harrisburg, PA/Lower Dauphin) and Rebecca Young (Macungie, PA/Emmaus).

Jingoli also had an assist for the Blue Jays, and Christy Callahan (Dallas, PA/Dallas) had a pair of assists.

With Moravian's 1-0 win over Messiah Saturday, Moravian, Messiah and Elizabethtown all finished with 6-1 conference records.

Moravian's only loss came to Elizabethtown, 3-2, Elizabethtown's only loss came to Messiah, 2-1, and Messiah's only loss was Saturday's 1-0 loss to Moravian.

In the event of such an occurrence, the Middle Atlantic Corporation, which administers both the Commonwealth Conference and the Freedom Conference, has a tiebreaker system in place loosely based upon the number of goals scored by each team in conference play:
A team receives one point for each goal scored in each conference game, but a team cannot receive more than three points for a single game.

Because Elizabethtown scored three goals or more in six of its seven conference games and scored one goal in its loss to Messiah, the Blue Jays get 19 points.

Because Moravian scored three goals or more in five of its seven conference games and scored two goals in its loss to Etown and one goal in its win over Messiah, the Greyhounds get 18 points.

Because Messiah scored three goals or more in five of its seven conference games, added two more goals in its win over Etown and got shut out by Moravian, the Falcons total comes to 17 points.

Because of these point totals, Elizabethtown gets the highest seed in the playoffs, while Moravian gets the second seed and Messiah takes the third seed.

Elizabethtown will face fourth-seeded Lebanon Valley at home in the opener of the Commonwealth Conference playoffs Wednesday, October 25. Game time is 2:30 p.m.
