BEREA, KY – The Mountaineers took the field with a purpose, capturing a 5-2 win over Johnson University on Berea's senior night.
The first goal for Berea came at the 11:40 mark, which was put in by Million Beshah who was assisted by Henok Kebede. After several scoreless minutes, Beshah struck again (21:34), scoring on an assist from senior, Brad Camenisch. The Royals tried to rebuttal by putting the ball in the net at the 26:11 mark, but the first half ended with the Mountaineers leading, 2-1.
Berea entered the second half showing no signs of exhaustion, and clearly prepared to increase the scoring gap between themselves and the Royals. After his assist in the first half, Henok Kebede was able to add a goal to his stat line, scoring at 49:55, with the assist coming from Qamar Shaker. The Royals certainly weren't ready to let Berea run away with the game, putting up another goal shortly after (54:22). Once again, however, the Mountaineers had an answer. Two seniors, Brad Camenisch (73:02) and Anthony Ayebiahwe (87:29), went on to score unassisted goals, putting on a show for the home crowd on senior night. With the addition of these goals, the game ended with Berea coming out on top, 5-2. Goalkeeper Caleb Stringer recorded six saves on the day, insuring the Mountaineers' win.
This win brings Berea's record to 9-7-1 on the season.
The Mountaineers now have to wait and find out if their season is done or if they will get a invite to the USCAA National Championships in Asheville, NC. The selection show will take place on October 27th at 5:30 PM.
