The Berkeley College New York men's soccer team rebounded from tough losses in two opening season tournaments to improve to 2-4 on the season and 1-0 in the Conference by defeating the St. Joseph's College Bears 11-3 Wednesday night.

Following a lackluster first half performance, the Knights opened the second half with an eye pleasing barrage of 5 goals in 15 minutes to take a commanding lead against their archrival. It was both teams HVMAC Conference opener and St Joseph's first ever varsity soccer intercollegiate match.

Freshman forward David Mugenga scored a Berkeley College rookie record 6 goals for the Knights despite an amazing performance by the St Joseph's goalkeeper who made a string of fine saves in the Bear's soccer debut.

Junior Guillermo Moscoso opened the scoring for Berkeley with a well timed header at the far post, followed by Mugenga's first of the night after he latched on to a rebound inside the six yard box. The Bears bounced right back with a goal of their own before sophomore Joel Yawili made it 3-1. The first half finished 4-2, as the teams traded goals.

Other Berkeley NY scorers on the night were senior Patrick Lundberg-Munoz, freshman Tashorn Clarke, and freshman Dare Aniyikaye.

The Knights next face College of Staten Island this Saturday at 4 P.M. at CSI.
