Benedictine University's women's socccer team won its fourth match in a row, topping Concordia University Chicago, 2-1, in River Forest. The Eagles improved their overall record to 5-4. The Cougars actually scored first in the 58th minute of play to grab a 1-0 advantage. But Benedictine came back when Kimyenna Abron took a pass from Jenny Walther and slammed in a shot from the right side in the 69th minute. It was Abron's team-leading seventh goal of the year. In the 81st minute, freshman Dani O'Toole tallied what would be the match winner on a penalty kick goal. BU goalkeeper Ashley Nielsen had three saves. Conversely, the Eagles' attack peppered CUC net-minder Kim Gottsacker, as she registered 10 saves.
