The Benedictine men's soccer team lost a 5-0 Northern Athletics Conference (NAC) match to Concordia University (Wis.) on Saturday afternoon at the Sports Complex. The Eagles are now 1-6 overall and 0-2 in the NAC. (Benedictine saw its losing streak reach six matches, having been kept from the win column since its opening-day win over Knox College). Senior goalkeeper Jason Maestas (pictured at left) had nine saves on the day as CUW out-shot the Eagles 30-4 for the match.


Benedictine University is an independent Roman Catholic institution located in Lisle, Illinois just 25 miles west of Chicago. Founded in 1887, Benedictine provides 56 undergraduate majors, 16 graduate and four doctorate programs. The Chronicle of Higher Education recently ranked Benedictine University as the seventh fastest-growing campus among private nonprofit master’s universities, and Forbes magazine named Benedictine among the top 20 percent of America’s colleges for 2011. Benedictine University’s Master of Business Administration (M.B.A.) program is listed by Crain’s Chicago Business as the fourth largest in the Chicago area in 2011.
