Benedictine women's soccer team continues its quest for that elusive first win of the year, losing its Northern Athletics Conference opening match, 5-0, to Edgewood College. The Eagles fell to 0-3 overall and 0-1 in the NAC. Junior goalie Ashley Nielsen had six saves and was charged with all five EC goals in the constant rain at The Sports Complex. Edgewood had 28 total shot attempts, compared to nine by the Eagles' team. Dani O'toole took four of BU's shot attempts.
