EMORY, Va. - The Bridgewater Eagles picked up a big conference victory Saturday night as they blanked Emory & Henry, 3-0.

The Eagles emerged from the halftime break and added their second goal when Sawyer Janes (Waynesboro, Va./Waynesboro) beat the Wasps keeper for a 2-0 Bridgewater advantage.
Bridgewater added its final goal in the 66th minute when a pass from Janes from the right side found the foot of Adam Riner (Gordonsville, Va./Louisa) and Riner deposited the ball into the middle of the net for the final margin.
Bridgewater keeper Travis Morris (Westminster, Md./Winters Mill) recorded the shutout. Morris faces eight shots and finished with a pair of saves.
