The Eagles end the year with an overall mark of 10-5-1. The loss also snapped BU's 10-match unbeaten streak. Ironically, the streak began with a 2-1 win over CUW in the regular season. The Falcons scored the lone goal of the match - unassisted - at the 53:43 mark. Bemedictine actually out-shot Concordia by a 13-12 margin. CUW goalkeeper Mary Ryan had six saves. Eagles' net-minder Ashley Nielsen had four saves in the loss.
