The Benedictine University Mesa men's soccer team was looking forward to this match: taking on the reigning Cal Pac Champion and nationally ranked Marymount California.
However, they couldn't keep up with the Mariners on Friday night, as the Redhawks fell 3-0 at Riverview Park in a key California Pacific Conference matchup.
The Redhawks were unable to muster much offense against the Mariners back line all night, tallying just seven shots. Their best opportunity came in the first half when Aaron Alvarez nearly chipped one in to the goal in the 14th minute that would've given BenU Mesa the lead, but it was saved at the last second.
Marymount would take the lead eight minutes later and tally two more goals in the second half that the Redhawks were unable to answer in taking their first conference loss of the season.
BenU mesa is back in action on Sunday, taking on Soka University of America at Riverview Park. Match time is scheduled for 3:00 p.m.
