The Berkeley College New Jersey men's soccer team suffered a tough loss on Sunday afternoon, falling to the Bobcats of Bryant & Stratton College-Syracuse by a score of 5-0 CNY Family Sports Centre in Syracuse, NY. With the loss, the Knights fell to 1-6 on the 2018 season, while the Bobcats improved to an unblemished 5-0 on the year.
Bryant & Stratton College-Syracuse dominated this match – but most of the offensive production from the Bobcats came in the second half of play. The lone goal in the opening 20 minutes came from Romaine Williamson, as he netted a goal in the 20th minute off a pass from Sterling McGee. After 45 minutes of action, the Knights trailed by a slim margin of 1-0.
In the second stanza, consecutive goals by Uros Momic five minutes apart catapulted Bryant & Stratton College-Syracuse's advantage to three goals. Momic scored in the 50th and 55th minutes, respectively, with the second of those two goals assisted by Jon Stublla. Alex Pompo (70th minute – unassisted) and Louda Jour Lewis (84th minute – Martin Misinu) accounted for the final two Bobcat goals of the afternoon.
It was the fourth shutout of the season for the Bocats, who out-shot the Knights on the afternoon 19-3.
Berkeley's Robert Parker made 14 saves for the Knights despite the loss.
The Knights will now have three days off before returning to action on Thursday afternoon, as Berkeley will travel to Phoenixville, PA to take on Valley Forge University. Start-time for that contest is scheduled for 3:00pm.
