For the second week in a row the Roanoke College men’s soccer team had their Sunday game cancelled due to COVID concerns. RC’s home game with Ferrum was cancelled on March 14 and last Sunday a game with Hampden-Sydney was called off.
In between the Maroons dropped a 4-3 decision to Randolph College last Thursday in Lynchburg. The WildCats raced out to a 4-0 lead before a furious Roanoke rally in the final ten minutes saw the Maroons come up one goal short.
Jake Berecz, Chris Jerrild and Gabriel Hendi scored the goals for Roanoke, all in the final seven minutes of play as the Maroon comeback came up just short. All three were unassisted.
The loss was the first of the season for the Maroons, who have won once and tied three times in five games along with four cancellations thus far. Roanoke will host Christopher Newport this Sunday at 2:30 pm.
