The Benedictine men's soccer team dropped its Northern Athletics Conference opening match, falling to Edgewood College, 4-0, at The Sports Complex. The Eagles are now 1-4 overall and 0-1 in the NAC. Benedictine was out-shot by a 21-10 margin in the match as Edgewood built a 3-0 cushion by halftime in the soggy field conditions. BU's starting goalie Jim Hanley registered four saves, while David Mickiewicz had one save in the second half. Mickiewicz was charged with one of EC's goals.
