With the odds against them from the beginning of the match, Benedictine's women's soccer squad gave Beloit College all it could handle and only a goal in the last minute gave the host Buccaneers the 1-0 win. The loss dropped the Eagles to 1-6 overall. Benedictine goalkeeper Ashley Nielsen had 10 saves and kept Beloit at bay for most of the match. However, a play in front of the Eagles' net allowed Beloit's Sophie Perry emerged with the ball and drive home the winner at the 89:14 minute juncture. Beloit out-shot Benedictine, which dressed just 11 players for the match due to injury, by a 19-5 margin for the match. However, the combination of Nielsen, along with defenders Jenny Walther, Carly Madison, Nicole Esposito and Carolina Menel, kept Beloit from scoring until that final attempt.
