The Benedictine University Mesa women's soccer team continued its strong play in conference play, remaining unbeaten in the Cal Pac with a win over Soka University of America, 5-0, on Sunday at Riverview Park in Mesa.
The Redhawks controlled the contest from the jump, but took awhile to record the first tally despite plenty of challenges. Finally, in the 44th minute, BenU Mesa broke the seal, as Victoria Zaragoza broke free into the box, deked the Soka keeper and put it home to give them a 1-0 lead heading to the break.
That goal proved to be the catalyst, as the Redhawks scored twice within the first three minutes of the second half, with BreAnna Laird and Karina Suarez virtually going back-to-back to give BenU Mesa a 3-0 lead.
