Rockford, IL -- The Beloit College Men's Soccer team rode Jackson Wilkins; three goals on the way to a 4-1 win over Rockford College in Rockford on Friday afternoon.

Wilkins got the Bucs on the board first 23 minutes in before the Regents tied it 14 minutes later as the teams ended the half knotted at one goal each.

Beloit exploded for three second half goals to put the game away, starting with Silas Connelly's score at 60:59, assisted by Bo Wilkins.

Jackson Wilkins then completed his hat trick with back-to-back goals - at 72:51, assisted by his older brother Bo, and at 80:50, unassisted - to close out the scoring.

Marco Castelan made two saves in net for the win.

The Buccaneers finish up a busy first week on Saturday afternoon at the Strong Complex Field when they host Cornell College. Kickoff is set for 2:00 p.m.
