The Benedictine men's soccer team had its biggest offensive day of the season, posting a 5-0 home non-conference win over Robert Morris College-Springfield on Saturday evening. The win improved the Eagles record to 3-5 overall. Giancarlo Chavez and Brett Olson virtually put the match out of reach in the first few minutes of the contest. Chavez scored a pair of goals - one at the 2:50 minute mark and another at 3:38 minutes into the match - to put the Eagles on top before the seats were even warm. Olson assisted on both of Chavez's tallies. Steve Davis added the Eagles next net-buster, with an assist from Cameron Leger off the corner kick at the 24:59 mark. Olsen netted a goal of his own at 35:16 minutes, while Izzy Castro closed the scoring spree just 28 seconds before halftime, making it the 5-0 final score. The Eagles goalkeeping combination of Jim Hanley and David Mickiewicz combined for the shutout. Hanley had one save and Mickiewicz two. For more Athletics News, visit the Athletics Web site.
