The Eagles are now 1-6 overall and 0-2 in the NAC. (Benedictine saw its losing streak reach six matches, having been kept from the win column since its opening-day win over Knox College). Senior goalkeeper Jason Maestas (pictured at left) had nine saves on the day as CUW out-shot the Eagles 30-4 for the match.
