The Benedictine men's soccer team drew the curtain on the 2007 season with a 4-1 loss at the hands of Lakeland College. The loss ended teh Eagles' season at 2-13 overall and 1-9 in the Northern Athletics Conference. It was also the Benedictine swansong for two seniors - Scott Hall and Jason Maestas - on the 2007 roster. Hall played to seasons for the Eagles and led the team in scoring during each. Maestas was a four-year player who became the team's starting goalkeeper toward the end of his freshman season (he played every minute in the nets as a junior and senior). Benedictine actually drew first blood against Lakeland when Giancarlo Chavez took a pass from Brandon Mitchell and netted the ball for the 1-0 advantage. That lead stood up until halftime. In the second half, Lakeland - which needed the win to make the NAC tournament - scored four short-handed goals on its way to the victory.
