EMORY, Va. - The Bridgewater College Men's Soccer Team (5-8, 2-3 ODAC) picked up a 3-0 victory over Emory & Henry College (4-8, 1-5 ODAC) in Old Dominion Athletic Conference play Saturday night at Fred Selfe Stadium.

The Eagles got on the board early in the 41st minute as Kevin Gorman finished a pass from Derek Newsome from the right side of the field. Bridgewater would take the 1-0 lead into the half.

After the break, Bridgewater pushed its lead to 2-0 on a goal by Sawyer Janes as he dribbled up the right side of the field and past the defense, finishing with a shot that found the far side of the net.

The Eagles would add a final insurance goal with 24:25 left to play. Janes found the foot of Adam Riner and he played a perfect shot into the back of the net for the score.
