Eastern Tops FDU for Freedom Title, Advances to MAC Final

The Eagles pushed the difference to eight goals early in the fourth on a Soldano goal. The junior midfielder scored again after splitting a double-team and dropping a ball into an open goal as the Devils pushed out to try for a turnover. Farrar, Will Johnson, and Wagner scored the final three goals of the day for the Eagles and Koontz put in three in the final nine minutes for the final score.

Benz made ten saves in 51 minutes to earn the win. Patt Groschan and Dave Hoger each made a stop in relief. The Eagles await the result of this evening's Commonwealth Championship game between top-seeded Albright and second-seeded Widener. If Albright wins, the Lions will host Saturday's final. If Widener wins, then Eastern will host the Pride in a 1:00 pm game on Olson Field. The MAC Champion will earn the League's Automatic bid to the NCAA Tournament.
