The Benedictine women's soccer team came out on the wrong side of a 1-0 decision to Dominican University Tuesday evening at The Sports Complex. The Eagles are now 1-4 overall, 0-3 in the Northern Athletics Conference (NAC). Benedictine had its chances in the match, putting nine of its 13 shot attempts directly on goal. The Stars (3-3, 3-0 NAC) had 15 overall shots, with eight on goal. Fortunately for Dominican, one made it to the back of the Eagles' net in the 57th minute of play. DU's Rosa Andreuccetti delivered a pass to Mayra Camacho from 30 yards in front of the net. Camacho received the ball 18 yards in front, settled it to her feet, and then quickly maneuvered around the Benedictine defender. With a one-on-one versus Eagles' goalkeeper Ashley Nielsen, Camacho shot from 10 yards on the righthand side to the far lower left corner to make it 1-0. Nielsen turned away seven Dominican shots in the game. Her Stars' counterpart Jacqui Lani registered two saves. Benedictine will be at home versus Concordia University (Wis.) on Saturday. Kickoff is at 1:00 p.m.
