(Carlisle, Pa.) – The Dickinson men's soccer team moved into first place in the Centennial Conference standings, turning back visiting front-runner Gettysburg College on Saturday afternoon, 2-0, at Miller Memorial Field.

The Bullets were in first entering the day, but a win by Johns Hopkins over Franklin & Marshall, coupled with the Red Devils' victory moves Dickinson into the top spot.

Junior Kevin Gilbert (Boxford, Mass./Masconomet Regional) kept pace at the top of the conference scoring leaders, netting his eighth of the season, just over seven minutes into the match.

That would be how the score would stand for almost the entire match. Both teams would have chances but were unable to convert until the 86th minute.

Sophomore Mohamed Kourouma (New Haven, Conn./Wilbur Cross) finished the second assist of the game from Tayler Eynon (Lancaster, Pa./Lancaster Country Day) to give the Red Devils some late insurance to secure the win.

The Red Devils outshot the Bullets 14-10 and had an 8-3 advantage on corners.

Dillon Konzelmann made four saves for Gettysburg as they fall to 7-4-1 overall and 4-2-0 in the conference.

Frederick Meagher (Southport, Conn./Fairfield-Ludlowe) made three saves in the nets for the Red Devils as they improve to 9-3-1 on the season and 4-1-1 in the conference. Dickinson is on the road on Wednesday night, traveling to Muhlenberg College for a 7:00 pm kick-off.
