Manor College men’s soccer wins conference title

John Dempster

Manor College defeated Central Penn College 4-3 to capture its first Eastern States Athletic Conference championship.

“What a ride this season has been, and to cap it off by winning the ESAC was amazing,” coach John Dempster said. “I always believed in this team, they just needed to believe in themselves. It all came together in the championship.”

Forward and captain Eddie Fortescue Jr. headed a corner kick past the Central Penn keeper for the game winner. He had two goals in the game and has 10 on the season.

Freshman Adan Crispin-Morales had three assists in the game.

“We had a really good week at practice, we changed our approach offensively and tweaked some of our set plays,” Dempster said. “I felt like if we could replicate what we did at practice, we would be fine.”

The win marked the 100th victory for Dempster, a Manor College alum who became coach of the Blue Jays in 2010. He’s also director of athletics.

“(Sports Information Director) Steve Glassman reminded me as we were celebrating at the end of the game, and it was a reminder that none of this is possible without my Lord and savior, Jesus Christ,” Dempster said. “For a good part of the season, when something went in our

favor, we said that’s the Favor of God and it really caught on. After winning the game last Saturday night, it was evident that we had the F.O.G.” ••
