WALESKA, GA – Brescia was back in action less than 24 hours following their hard fought loss to Truett-McConnell. Today's opponent, Reinhardt University would prove to be a tough one.
Brescia would open up the score line when Kerby Edme would play in Doodlyn Colas, who would slot his finish past the Reinhardt Goalkeeper. Reinhardt would respond by reeling off five unanswered goals to take a 5-1 lead before Brescia would respond. Montrez Mason would put his long throw-in into the box where Jean Laurent would head it home to cut the score line to 5-2. Reinhardt would go on to add two more in the half, where the score line would read 7-2 at half.
In the second half Brescia would give another one away before Karim Ndoye would be brought down in the box and put away his own penalty. The match would go on to end 8-3 in favor of Reinhardt.
"It was a tough match to say the least. While I was happy to open up the scoring and take the early lead, it wasn't close to enough for us. All the small things we did yesterday (vs Truett-McConnell) we did not do today and I think a lot of it come down to fatigue and depth to match our opponents. The boys put their heart and soul into the match vs Truett and I think we simply ran out of gas early in the match today. Irregardless of the results, I think it was a good weekend for us, we learned a lot. Thanks to Reinhardt for having us down" stated Head Coach Will Van Nostrand.
Brescia is back in action on Wednesday, September 6th at Gerorgetown (2-1), kickoff at 7:00PM EST.
