Event Recap:

Berkshire played at home today against Brunswick. From the start, Berkshire took control against Brunswick's big and athletic team.  With quick ball movement and good runs off the ball, Berkshire was able to control possession and build lots of chances.  Berkshire's midfield and back line did a good job limiting Brunswick's chances.  In the 15th minute, Berkshire opened the scoring for the day with a great cross from Justin Donawa '15 to Tony Amolo '13 who finished well. Six minutes later, Zeiko Lewis '13 struck the back of the net on an alert play off a quick restart. Less than two minutes later, Noah Sinkoff '13 served a great cross to Tanner Tomasi '13 who headed the ball skillfully past the keeper. Brunswick started to push harder and were rewarded in the 31st minute when a cross sailed deep in the box and a Brunswick player redirected the ball back across the face of the goal.  Two Berkshire players slipped trying to track the ball across the goal, so the ball rolled uncontested into the net.  Just five minutes later, Berkshire responded with the final goal of the half.  Jack Harrison' 15 chipped a ball behind Brunswick's back line to Zeiko Lewis '13 who received under pressure and then dipped around the keeper and slotted the ball in the net.  At halftime the Bears had a 4-1 lead.

In the second half, Berkshire opened the scoring early with Zeiko Lewis '13 returning the favor to Jack Harrison '15.  A short ball splitting two defenders and Jack Harrison '15 struck side netting, pushing the lead to 5-1.  At this point, Berkshire was able to work all the reserves onto the field for the final 35 minutes of play, and the reserves played very well. Both teams would score another - Brunswick on a penalty for an interesting hand ball call against the Bears, and then Berkshire when Lou Scaglione '13 beat his man on the right and delivered a great cross that was knocked in by Brunswick defender.  Though Berkshire took some hard knocks in the match, they kept their heads and continued to play its game throughout the match. The final score was 7-2 for Berkshire.

It was a good win for the Bears, and every member of the team was able to contribute with quality minutes today. Up next, Berkshire plays Gunnery at home on Saturday at 3:30 PM.
