Arvidson Scores Winner in E.T.

October 29th, 2016



CHICAGO, Ill. – SDFA Alumni Josh Arvidson scored in double overtime to lead the Elmhurst men’s soccer team to a 1-0 victory over North Park University.

Elmhurst closed out the season with an 8-7-3. After a scoreless regulation and first overtime period, Arvidson netted the game winner with just 1:28 left to play in the second overtime, scoring off a rebound off a Zach Clements shot.

North Park (10-6-1) outshot Elmhurst 16-15 in the contest, but the Bluejays enjoyed a 9-4 edge in corner kicks.

Nick King earned the shutout in goal by stopping all eight shots he faced. Wesley Woodley took the loss in goal for the Vikings, allowing one goal while recording six saves.

September 5th, 2016


ANDERSON, Ind. – First half goals from Josh Arvidson and Alec Gnass was all the Elmhurst men’s soccer team needed as the Bluejays ended a two-game road trip with a 2-0 shutout win at Anderson University.

Arvidson and Gnass scored just 92 seconds apart in the game’s first 10 minutes to provide the contest’s entire offense. Arvidson struck first, flicking the ball over Anderson keeper Brandon Weer’s head and into the back of the net. Derek Dedman assisted on Arvidson’s goal just 8:28 into the contest.

Gnass padded Elmhurst’s lead to two goals just 92 seconds letter. Nick Fecci worked his way to free space and sent a cross to Gnass for the Bluejays’ second goal of the contest.

Elmhurst’s defense did the rest, outshooting Anderson 13-5 in the game and not allowing the Ravens a shot in the entire second half.
