ELLSWORTH — While Ellsworth dominated in terms of ball control in the first half, more than 28 minutes elapsed before the host Eagles notched their first goal in Tuesday’s win over GSA.

Senior Zach Emeigh gathered in a long kick from goalkeeper Jordan Carter, drove to the center of the 18 and lined the ball into the net past GSA goalkeeper Ben Olivari.

Ellsworth’s second goal came just a minute later when Drew Barkhouse came up with the ball after a long flip-throw by Andrew Austin and scored from about six yards out.

Sophomore Kyle Haslam scored both second-half goals for Ellsworth, the first off a loose ball following a Matt Duhaime corner kick.

The second came after a shot by Max Grover got away from Olivari and rolled just outside the post.

Haslam trapped the ball, rolled it back around the post and nudged it into the corner of the net.

Carter had five saves on seven shots in goal for Ellsworth, and Olivari made 14 stops on Ellsworth’s 36-shot barrage.
