Marc Robinson ’13, who had missed games early in the season for the Beloit College men’s soccer team, came up big during the conference schedule. The Bucs took on Knox College on Sunday in Galesburg IL and Robinson caught ﬁre. He scored four goals and added an assist on a goal by Jackson Wilkins ‘13. Robinson’s high scoring game tied his career record for goals in a game, making this the second time he has completed the feat.
The Bucs scored their ﬁrst goal 1:28 minutes into the game when Wilkins crossed a ball into the box and hit Robinson for his ﬁrst goal of the day. Wilkins tallied up another assist to Robinson just before half time with another cross, this time onto Robinson’s head and into the goal.
The Bucs came out hot in the second half of play, scoring three goals in less than 15 minutes. The ﬁrst goal came from Robinson and was assisted by Wilkins once again, making it his third assist to Robinson’s third goal of the day. That wasn’t the last time the forward duo would team up. Just six minutes later, Robinson hit Wilkins in stride for his only goal of the day. Robinson would add his ﬁnal goal without an assist, as the ball deﬂected oﬀ a Knox defender and Robinson stole it en route to the net.
Beloit’s defense held strong for the entire game, only forcing goalie BJ Kiser’15 to make one save. The Bucs moved to 3-5-1 overall, with a 2-1-0 record in conference. They take on St. Norbert College Saturday, Oct. 8 at 3:30 p.m at Strong Stadium. The Bucs hold sole possession of second place in the Midwest Conference, just behind Carroll University, who handed the Bucs their only loss of the conference season.
