The Eagles' men's soccer squad duked it out with Marian University for the better part of its match Saturday evening, before falling by a 3-1 score. The loss dropped the Eagles to 5-8-1 overall and 2-5-1 in the Northern Athletics Conference. Marian led 1-0 at the half as the two clubs battled intensely. In the second half, a penalty kick goal - assessed after BU goalkeeper Jim Hanley was given a yellow card on a foul against him while going for a loose ball in the box - lifted the Sabres to a 2-0 lead at the 55:02 mark of the match. With MU up 3-0, Benedictine broke through with just 47 seconds left in the match on a goal by Charles Schreiber. Brett Olson assisted for the 3-1 final score. Hanley had three saves in the match.
