Blue Jays blank Gustavus Adolphus to reach Sweet 16

November 19th, 2013 in News

The run this season for the Westminster men's soccer team is taking a historic turn.

Led by a goal in the 25th minute from junior midfielder Mitch Stewart, the Blue Jays dispatched the Gustavus Aldophus Golden Gusties 1-0 in the second round of the NCAA Division III men's soccer tournament on Sunday at the Gustie Soccer Field.

With the win, Westminster (13-8-1) advances to the Sectional round for the first time in school history and will play the No. 6 ranked Loras (Iowa) College Duhawks this weekend at a time and day to be determined. Loras (17-1-3) tied Luther 1-1 through two overtimes on Sunday before winning the game in penalty kicks.
