Benedictine University's young men's soccer team was able to keep visiting Elmhurst College out of the nets for the bulk of the match, but a pair of late goals sealed the Eagles' fate, 2-0. BU is now 1-3 on the year. Elmhurst - which improved to 4-1-1 on the season - outshot Benedictine by a 30-5 margin. The Bluejays' Jon Brehm tallied a goal at the 76:52 mark and teammate Cory Proffer added a goal at the 84:25 juncture. Eagles' goalkeeper Jason Maestas had 13 saves, nine in the second half alone. Offensively, Alex Freidine and Brett Olson each had shots on goal for Benedcitine. Benedictine next plays at Edgewood College on Saturday at 1:15 p.m. to open Northern Athletics Conference action.
