|Score:||Berkshire 1 - Kent 0|
On what was a perfect fall day, Berkshire hosted Kent for the second match of season. Berkshire started the first half with aggressive play from the midfield. Charlie Goldstein and Cory Wieczorek played well in the middle allowing Berkshire to keep the ball in Kent's half. Despite some strong interior work from Tanner Boyle and Luke Amero, Berkshire couldn't find the back of the net. Defensively, Wilfred Dyer Kloman served as the anchor. His play was consistent and helped prevent Kent from scoring on several possessions. The end of the first half found the score knotted at 0.
The second half of the match continued to be a back-and-forth game of possession; neither team could establish significant control of the ball. Kenny Sperl's aggressive play in the goal kept the game scoreless until Tyler Smith shot on goal from 30 yards out and hit the crossbar. Barclay Gammel fought his way for the rebound and headed ball for the first goal of the game. The defense continued to play well in the second half. Along with Wilfred's strong play, Trevor Berry also shot down his side of the field. Berkshire was able to hold on to the one goal lead and earn their second victory.
