Men’s Soccer Blanks Elizabethtown

Junior Evan Smallwood’s first-half goal stood up as the Muhlenberg men’s soccer team shut out Elizabethtown, 1-0, in its second-to-last home game of the season.

The Blue Jays (7-2-3) entered the contest with a five-game unbeaten streak and ranked seventh in the Mid-Atlantic Region. The Mules (8-5) are in a middle of a stretch in which they play eight of nine games against teams that have been regionally ranked this year, and they are 3-3 so far in those games.

In the 31st minute, Smallwood sent in a high, floating shot from 30 yards out that snuck under the crossbar and into the net for his third goal of the season.

Muhlenberg did not allow Elizabethtown many serious scoring chances, but had to sweat out the win late in the second half. With nine minutes to play, a Blue Jay shot hit the left post. In the final minute, there was a scramble in front of the net following the only corner kick of the match, but E-town was whistled for a hand ball.

Combined with last year’s 1-0 win at Elizabethtown, this is the first time the Mules have defeated their regional rivals in the regular season in back-to-back years.
