All-American Ethan Finlay scored a pair of first half goals and added an assist in the second half to lead the sixth-ranked Creighton men’s soccer team to a 5-0 win at UMKC Wednesday night. Jose Gomez chipped in with two assists and a goal as the Bluejays improved to 2-0-0 by posting their second shutout of the season.
“It was a good win on the road, we scored a lot of goals and had multiple players score for us,” said head coach Elmar Bolowich following the win. “Our new players contributed nicely and that allowed us to use them more on a hot night. The reserves brought a lot of energy and kept the energy level up for us. We can take a lot of positives from this match and take them into our home opener.”
The Bluejays added a pair of second-half goals to conclude their most lopsided victory since a 6-1 win over Central Arkansas on Sept. 27, 2006.
Creighton, which opened the season with two true road matches for the first time since the program was restarted in 1990, returns home this weekend. The Bluejays host Drexel in their 2011 home opener on Sunday night at 7 pm.
