Just five days after they won their first Landmark championship by defeating Catholic one to nothing at home, the Blue Jays are headed to Cortland, New York to face the Williams College EEFS in the first round of the NCAA tournament.
“The championship was fun, after going to the finals the last four years and finally being able to get over the hump to win it, definitely felt good. The team and I, we feel good about the first game. Williams is going to be a tough matchup, but we’re a good team too, so I think it’s going to be a good game. I think we’re going to be able to get by them in the first round,” Tyler Colasanto said.
Sophomore Clark Williamson scored his first career goal off of this corner kick in the 63rd minute to seal the victory for Elizabethtown.
Head coach Skip Roderick has his unit more than ready for the first round on Saturday. The Jays have not allowed multiple goals to an opponent in over two months, which has the team feeling more than confident to win a national championship.
I think we just have to keep playing the way we have been playing. We haven’t lost in 12 to 13 games. We came in really hot, we haven’t given up a goal in a long time, and we’ve been playing really well. We feel pretty confident that there’s not many teams out there that can beat us right now.” Andrew McGowan said.
This poster of soccer balls represents the appearances the Jays have made in the national tournament. 33 out of the 34 soccer balls are highlighted in blue. The one that’s highlighted in white, is the 1989 season where the Jays won their first national championship. Now while they will have a soccer ball for 2018, much like 1989, they hope to have those numbers in white as well.
