The Briar Cliff men's soccer team posted a 5-1 road victory at Mount Marty today and Rodrigo Oliveira set the school record for assists in a season with 13 now on the year. Oliveira came into the game tied with Danny Wolf and Chris Blanchette in the records book with 12 assists in a season apiece but Oliveira now stands alone atop the chart. The Chargers improved to 9-3 overall and 2-2 in the GPAC, while the Lancers slid to 3-6 overall and 0-4 in conference play. 

Briar Cliff scored two goals in the first half and added three more in the second half for the run-away 5-1 victory. Jake Dube got the Chargers on the scoreboard first, less than 10 minutes into the game on an assist by Kye Edwards. Tyler Krajewski would bolster the lead to 2-0 with less than five minutes left in the first half as Luis Hernandez assisted him on the goal. Oliveira would get his record-setting assist in the second half on Dube's second goal of the matchup. Mount Marty made the score 3-1 with 22 minutes left in regulation before Zach Sortino found the back of the net on an assist by Edson Irineo and Wyatt Jelden would cap the scoring minutes later with a goal off an assist by Tona Hernandez.

The Chargers outshot the Lancers 28-8 in the game and also had a 12-2 edge in corner kicks. The two teams combined for 26 fouls with MMC having 14 and BCU had 12 fouls. Charlie Enright earned the win at keeper with one save and one goal allowed and Nate Frankman also time at keeper for the Cliff. Zachary Lyday suffered the loss with five goals allowed and 12 saves.

Oliveira paced BC in shot attempts with seven and had four on goal to go with his one assist and Dube was second in shots with four and two goals. Krajewski and Sortino both took three shots, trailed by Edwards, Irineo, Jelden and Tona Hernandez with two shots each.

Joseph Callan led the Lancers in shots with three and Gabriel Martin attempted two shots.

Briar Cliff is off until next Saturday when it will welcome Dakota Wesleyan to Faber Field at 3:30 p.m.
