After falling for the first time in Cal Pac play on Friday, the Benedictine University Mesa men's soccer team was looking for a pick-me up.
And they got just that, as the Redhawks scored early in the first half and tacked on insurance in the second frame on their way to a 3-1 victory over Soka University of America on Sunday afternoon at Riverview Park.
It didn't take long for the Redhawks to strike, as Bwaleso Igulu found some room in the box and found the back of the net less than a minute into the contest for BenU Mesa.
BenU Mesa made that hold until the 59th minute, when Gerves Fagan chipped one past the Soka keeper, banging it off the post and in to give the Redhawks a 2-0 lead.
Soka would cut the lead to just one in the 77th minute but with just seven minutes to go, Jose Rodriguez banged home a penalty kick after a foul in the box that gave BenU Mesa the final tally.
Luke Boudreau got the win for the Redhawks in net, making six saves on the afternoon for BenU Mesa.
