Bluejays bring the heat right away

[CREIGHTON-PROVIDENCE] No. 3 Creighton's 3-0 win over No. 25 Providence on a wet Saturday night kept the Bluejays perfect with six wins in six games, all shutouts. They have matched their best start since 2000 when they reached the NCAA Division I championship game.

Creighton needed only four minutes to get on the board, being awarded a penalty kick when Dion Acoff was taken down inside the box after settling a perfect feed from Jose Gomez.

All-American Ethan Finlay converted the penalty for his third goal of the season and the Jays never looked back.

Costa Rican Bruno Castro, who to Creighton from North Carolina along with Coach Elmar Bolowich, fed Greg Jordan for the second goal on a second diving header goal off a corner kick only 10 minutes later.

"We wanted to come out different, no matter what the conditions," said Bolowich. "We wanted to be a little more energetic, we wanted to bring the heat right away and decide the game early with goals."

Finlay added a pretty insurance tally in the 76th minute, as he settled a perfectly placed ball from Castro with his chest and volleyed it to the left of a diving Jhojan Obando in goal for Providence.  The goal was Finlay's 33rd of his career and it marked the seventh two-goal match of his career.
