Women’s Soccer Downed 2-0 at Saint Ben’s Posted on October 12th, 2019 by


ST. JOSEPH, Minn. – Playing in a wintery mix of snow and rain Saturday afternoon, the Gustavus women’s soccer team lost a 2-0 decision at Saint Benedict, falling to 2-10 overall and 1-5 in the MIAC. Saint Ben’s is now 7-2-2 overall and remains unbeaten in the league at 4-0-1.

Neither team was able to net a goal in the first half with the shots even at five apiece. In the 66th minute, the Bennies took advantage of a corner kick by knocking around a couple chances in a congested goal area. Ashley Becker (Sr., Farmington), who finished the game with 10 saves, stopped the initial shot off the corner kick but the Bennies scored on the rebound.

With just over 10 minutes remaining in the game, the home team was able to add an insurance goal to seal the victory. Saint Ben’s outshot the Gusties 13-6 in the final 45 minutes.

Gustavus next hosts Bethel at 3:30 p.m. Tuesday.
