Berry's Bryan Byers scored three goals, but Birmingham-Southern defeated the Vikings 11-4 in a men's lacrosse game in Birmingham Wednesday.
Berry trailed 3-2 at the end of the first period, and kept the score right there until giving up a goal with just two seconds remaining in the half. BSC would outscore Berry 3-0 in the third period to take a 7-2 advantage.
Matt Ivie led BSC with six goals, while D.J. Ward scored three times.
The Panthers outshot Berry 55-19 in the game. BSC also held a 34-17 groundball advantage and won 12 of 18 faceoffs in the contest.
The Vikings and Panthers were forced to overcome more than each other in the game; they also battled the elements. At one point, the game was stopped for 30 minutes due to lightning.
Berry is scheduled to return to action Friday, when it plays a neutral-site game against Catholic University at Greater Atlanta Christian School in Norcross.
