|Date:||April 27, 2013|
|Score:||10 - 13|
Event Recap:The Bears started off with a quick 3-0 lead, building to 6-3, and it looked as though the game would go well. However, things quickly unraveled as Kingswood-Oxford took advantage of a numbers up situation after a yellow card and tied the game. Then, the Wyverns went up 7-6 just before the half.
A stunned Berkshire team took to the field in the second half knowing they would need to calm down and play with more composure. There was also a need to win the draw. Unfortunately, Kingswood stormed the field and stole the momentum that Berkshire needed. They played with heart and won the crucial 50/50 balls that proved decisive in this close battle. In the final five minutes, Berkshire had a number of chances that were stifled by goalie saves, strong Kingswood defense, and a few unforced errors.
The Bears will look to regroup before a tough contest against Hotchkiss on Wednesday.
