The Berkeley College New Jersey men's soccer team stayed unbeaten on the 2017 season, as the Knights demolished Penn State York on Wednesday afternoon by the score of 11-1 in a match played in York, PA. With the win, Berkeley is now 5-0 on the season, while the Nittany Lions dipped to a record of 0-2-1.
Wender Lima scored Berkeley College's first two goals, notching tallies at 22:00 (from Kevin Soares) and at 36:00 (off a pass from Ichiaaka Doumbia). The Knights lead 2-0 at that juncture, and Berkeley would add two more goals in the latter stages of the opening period – one from Hassane Camara (from Soares) at 41:00 – and another from Gregory Poposki (also from Soares) – to take a 4-0 lead. That would be the score as the teams broke for halftime.
In the second half – the Knights increased their lead to 5-0 when Thomas Gerbasio cleaned up a rebound in front of the net and scored at 54:00. Penn State York did get on the scoreboard five minutes later (at 59:00) when Carlos Robles-Flores would score an unassisted goal to make the score 5-1.
Following the Nittany Lions' tally, Berkeley College would score six consecutive goals to put the exclamation point on a convincing victory. The Knights' final six goals were by Lima, Alejandro Castro-Rubio, two by Shabthai Abellard, Romain, and Edgar Jurado.
The Knights will look to make it six consecutive victories to start the season on Friday afternoon, as Berkeley College will travel to Summerdale, PA to take on Central Penn. Start time for that contest is scheduled for 3:00pm.
