Berkshire was on the road again today, and they met a tough and competitive side from Wilbraham & Monson. With three starters out with injuries, the Bears would need an inspired performance from some of its reserves to claim an important road win. The game opened well for Bears and they controlled much of the early possession and generated some fine scoring chances. The best chance early in the match came when Matt Renzi '13 got on the end of cross and hit a rocket of shot that was stopped by a good save from Wilbraham's keeper. The ensuing rebound was headed off the cross bar by Tony Amolo '13. Later in the half Zeiko Lewis '13 played a great ball onto the feet of Justin Donawa '15 who turned the corner nicely around his defender but his shot sailed wide of the goal. Noah Sinkoff '13 almost scored twice but both times the Wilbraham's keeper was well positioned and made the saves. With continued pressure the Bears eventually took the lead when a Berkshire cross was deflected by Wilbraham defender and fell into the back of the net. Following this goal, the Bears were unable to secure a much needed insurance goal, and during this time Wilbraham built up some good pressure of its own. For the final minutes of the half, Berkshire did a good job fending off Wilbraham who seemed keen to equalize.
