   The Bulldogs routed City College 4-0 last Wednesday, Oct. 11.

   Brooklyn College outshot their uptown foe 30-6 as they improved to 2-9 overall and 2-3 in CUNYAC play. CCNY gave away a penalty in the fifth minute, which BC junior forward Jordi Hernandez slotted into the opposition net. Brooklyn doubled their lead by halftime when freshman midfielder George Koufos whipped in a ball to sophomore midfielder Bradlej Cupi, which gave them a 2-0 lead. The CCNY Beavers struggled to defend away from home, committing nine fouls in the first half alone.

   It took the Bulldogs a little over six minutes to score their third goal of the day. Freshman midfielder Adan Khodorkovsky found fellow freshman Seif Mokhtar on the field. Mokhtar was clinical and scored Brooklyn’s third goal at the 51-minute mark. Hernandez made his second goal of the night at the 54-minute mark. The Bulldogs troubled the Beavers for the rest of the game.

   CCNY finished with only three shots on target. This was a special victory for Luis Garcia, Luis Gomez, and Alex Mishiyev as all three of these Bulldogs were honored as a part of Senior Day.
