Benedictine's men's soccer team took a break from its Northern Athletics Conference schedule and may have been just what the doctor ordered as it defeated Lake Forest College, 2-1, on the road. The win upped the Eagles overall record to 2-5 on the season. The two teams battled to a scoreless draw during the first 45 minutes of play. BU's sophomore goalkeeper Jim Hanley had three saves during each stanza. Benedictine sophomore Brett Olson put his team on top, 1-0, with a goal at the 59:06 mark of the match, with the assist credited to Charles Schreiber. The tally was Olson's second goal of 2008. That lead stood up for the next 25 minutes until the Foresters knotted things at 1-1 in the 85th minute. But the Eagles responded almost immediately to reclaim the lead and eventual victory. At the 85:48 minute juncture, freshman Cameron Leger took a pass from David Bock and drove the ball into the LFC net for the 2-1 margin of victory. It was also Leger's second goal as an Eagle in 2008. Benedictine kept the pressure on the Foresters during the second half, sending four additional shots on the LFC goalie.
