Benedictine once again found the "winner's circle" on Saturday, topping Maranatha Baptist Bible College, 2-0, at The Sports Complex. The win improved the Eagles' record to 2-10 overall and 1-6 in the Northern Athletics conference. Brandon Mitchell gave Benedictine the 1-0 first half lead with a penalty kick goal at the 23:50 mark. In the second half, Scott Hall found a loose ball off the Crusaders' goalkeeper and netted his team's second goal of the match at 73:36. Senior goalkeeper Jason Maestas turned away nine shots on goal by MBBC to preserve the victory and the shutout. MBBC out-shot the Eagles by a 14-10 margin in overall attempts. The win snapped a 10-match losing streak since the BU team won its season opener.
