The Benedictine women’s soccer team ran it’s unbeaten streak to five matches as it forged a 1-1 double-overtime tie versus Milwaukee School of Engineering. The Eagles are now 5-4-1 overall and 3-3-1 in the Northern Athletics Conference. MSOE led at the intermission, 1-0, scoring its goal in the 20th minute. In the 69th minute, freshman Dani O’Toole scored an unassisted goal to knot the match at 1-1. The two overtime periods resolved nothing and the teams settled for the draw. Benedictine goalkeeper Ashley Nielsen had six saves. The Eagles out-shot the Raiders by a 25-15 margin, 17 of which came in the second half and two OT segments.
