Vikings Ground Eagles with a Shutout

ROME, Ga. -- Blake Gwizdalski scored two goals and had two assists as Berry College defeated Benedictine University, 9-0, on Monday. The Vikings improved to 5-3 for the year. The Eagles dropped to 2-4.

Corey Hall scored a game-high three goals and had one helper for BC. Nat Morey added two goals and Max Smerka dished two assists for the home club.

Berry led 6-0 after one period. The Vikes tacked on three more goals in the second period.

Midway through the second period, however, lightning delayed the game. The teams cleared the field and a later tornado watch came to Mount Berry.

At about 5:50, the teams agreed not to retake the field. Per the NCAA rule book, the two head coaches agreed not to reschedule and to award the win to Berry.

The Vikings led in shots (19-7) and won six of 10 face-offs. Jeffrey Smitheran had eight saves for the Eagles.

Berry opens SAA play on Tuesday when Oglethorpe visits for a 4:00 p.m. match.
