LISLE, Ill. – Marian University men’s soccer (3-5-1, 0-2-0 NACC) fell on the road at Benedictine by a 5-1 final in NACC action.
The Marian defense was able to rebound after allowing a goal just 26 seconds in, but a slow end of the half allowed the Eagles to take a 3-0 lead at the break with a pair of goals in the final four minutes. The Sabres were able to get on the board when senior Chris Nelson was able to redirect a Benedictine pass into the goal for his second goal of the year. Benedictine responded less than a minute later to extend their lead back out to three and then closed out the scoring with a tally in the 72nd minute.
The Sabres finished with nine shots, five of which were on goal, led by freshman Walter Sebastian who had a pair of shots. In goal, junior Cory Koehler (1-2-0) took the loss making seven saves, four of which came in the second half.
Marian returns home to take on Concordia Wisconsin at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 2 in NACC action.
