The Eagles' women's soccer squad fell to 0-2 in the Northern Athletics Conference with a 2-0 loss at Edgewood College on Saturday in Madison, Wis. Benedictine is 1-3 overall. The host EC team held a 12-5 advantage in shot attempts. Edgewood tallied both of its goals in the first half, scoring in the 13th and 22nd minutes. BU sophomore goalkeeper Ashley Nielsen had five saves and was charged with both goals, playing the entire 90 minutes in the nets.
