Gustavus Adolphus 2, Fredonia State 0

Nov. 19, 2005

GRAND RAPIDS -- A pair of second half goals propelled Gustavus Adolphus to the NCAA III Men's Soccer Final Four Saturday afternoon as the Golden Gusties blanked Fredonia State of New York 2-0 in a national quarterfinal game.

Saturday's game was held at Calvin College and played at Marvin A. Zuidema Field.

Gustavus Adolphus (16-2-5) will face the winner of a sectional hosted by Whitworth College (WA) which will be decided on Sunday.

After a scoreless first half, Gustavus Adolphus struck quickly in half number-two as senior Bobby Kroog took a lead pass from teammate Caleb Bousu and fired a shot from 20 yards out that tucked just inside the far post. The goal was the 14th of the year for Kroog and his second goal of the sectional tournament.

Gustavus Adolphus came up with the clincher with just 16:57 left in regulation. The play began with Kroog flicking a pass just outside the box to teammate Jeffrey Johnson and Johnson followed by lofting a well-placed shot over Fredonia State goalkeeper Matt Borchard's head just underneath the crossbar.

The Golden Gustie defense held strong the rest of the way to preserve the shutout. Both teams finished with eight shots at goal while Borchard had one save for Fredonia State (17-4-4) and Tyler Garry three saves for Gustavus Adolphus.
