The Berkeley College New Jersey men's soccer team endured its fourth consecutive defeat on Thursday evening, falling to the Bengals of the University of Maine at Fort Kent by a score of 6-0 in a contest played at Ramapo College in Mahwah, NJ. With the loss, Berkeley College is now 10-6 on the 2017 campaign, while the Bengals stayed unbeaten with a mark of 11-0.
The University of Maine at Fort Kent used three goals in the opening session to take control of the match. James Blanchett scored the opening goal at the 12:10 mark (Shawn Genus picked up an assist on the goal), and he would add another tally at 15:06 as he would bury a pass from Stuart Conway. The Bengals held a 2-0 edge at that point, and would find the back of the net again when Rodney Witter would bury a ball into the goal (off of a pass from Carlos Crusat-Lopez) at the 18:02 mark. That made it 3-0 in favor of the University of Maine at Fort Kent, and that would be the score as the teams broke for halftime.
