In a rare Sunday match, Berkshire played on the road against Northfield Mount Hermon. It was the first time in a long time that Berkshire has had a match with NMH, so it was an exciting day for both teams. Coming off a disappointing tie with Hotchkiss on Friday, Berkshire looked to play a full 90 minutes and try and claim an important road win against one of the toughest teams in New England. From the start it seemed the Bears were ready to play as they moved the ball well around the field and generated some dangerous attacking sequences. While NMH did not have as much of the ball, they defended well and countered well testing the back four from Berkshire several times. In the 15th minute, Berkshire found the net when Jack Harrison '15 slotted a perfect ball through NMH's back line onto the foot of Zeiko Lewis '13 who eluded the oncoming rush by NMH's keeper and then tucked the ball in the back of the net. Following the goal, Berkshire continued to do a good job in possession while also fending off NMH's forays into Berkshire territory. Just eight minutes after the first goal, Berkshire found the net again when Zeiko Lewis '13 served a great ball across the box onto the foot of Tony Amolo '13 who skillfully one-timed the cross into the back of the NMH's net. The half was far from over though, as NMH started to press the Bears hard looking to close the gap. Berkshire's back line of Justin Donawa '15, Nate Summers '14, Brandon Allen '13 and Noah Sinkoff '13 and keeper Bryan Gerstenfeld '14 stood up the pressure well and managed to keep the home side off the scoreboard. At the half, Berkshire led NMH by a score of 2-0.
