Batavia, OH- The men's soccer team looked to get their third win of the season and second win in a row as they traveled to Batavia, OH. The team were visitors to the University of Cincinnati-Clermont.
The offenses for both teams got off to a hot start as the teams combined for 17 shots in the first half (nine for Berea and eight for Clermont) but excellent goalkeeping play from Robby Vollrath held Clermont scoreless.

As the defense picked up for the Mountaineers, holding Clermont to just three shots, the offense continued to attack. On the strength of seven shots, the insurance goal for Berea came with six minutes remaining in regulation as Dakota Massucco put a ball into the net to give the Mountaineers a 2-0 lead and the third win of the season.
