The team also played very undisciplined and recklessly, totaling an astounding 10 fouls and 11 offsides. 

On Sept. 7, the Bearcats were defeated by The Sage Colleges by a score of 2-1. 

The Bearcats fell behind in the 12th minute, and despite a Michael Grald equalizer in the 31st minute, they could not recover from a second-half goal by Sage. 

In this match, the Bearcats mustered just 10 shot attempts, compared to the 19 by Sage. 

The next day, the Bearcats played Sage in a rematch and were unable to counter Sage’s offense, despite scoring 3 goals. 

By the 27th minute, the Bearcats were leading 2-0, and a mere 10 minutes later they found themselves down 3-2. 

Cormac Foley found the back of the net in the 48th minute, assisted by Jaedon Seneca to tie the game. 

It was in vain though, as the Sage Saxons scored the eventual game-winner in the 76th minute.  

The match was highly competitive and scrappy, as the two teams totaled 26 fouls.
