Davis College men’s soccer team started slow and never recovered in a 6-1 loss as they took a trip to NYC to battle against Hudson Valley Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (HVIAC) opponent Berkeley College on Wednesday evening.
The host Berkeley College Knights came out ready to play and attacked early and often against the sluggish Falcons. The Knights scored 4 goals in the first 22 minutes of the contest and never looked back. Berkeley’s Jean-Gardy Derineau started the scoring spree as he scored at the 2:47 mark and 4 more Knights entered the scoring column on the half as the took a 5-0 lead into halftime.
In the second 45 minutes the Falcons played much stronger and tightened up on defense and were finally able to get a successful attack of their own as Zach Willis set up Austim Mousseau on the left side and he was able to chip the ball over the goalkeeper’s head and into the net.
Berkeley dominated in the shots taken category, out-shooting the Falcons 33-9. The Knights also had 7 corner kick opportunities compared to 0 for the Falcons.
The Falcons have a short turnaround as they compete again tonight at 8:00 p.m. They are staying in NYC and playing another HVIAC opponent, King’s College, at the Aviator Sports Complex in Brooklyn, NY.
