OAKLAND - It's one thing to hold a soccer team to a shutout. But to not allow an opposing team to even get a shot towards the net is something entirely different.
That's just what the Benedictine University Mesa women's soccer team did on Thursday night, stifling the host Mills College and putting a couple of tallies of their own on the board in a 2-0 victory in non-conference action in California.
The Redhawks were the aggressors all night, racking up 17 shots, including seven on goal, while also keeping pressure on the defensive end to where the Cyclones couldn't even get a shot off towards the Benedictine goal.
And while there were plenty of opportunties for BenU to really pull away, their offense finished enough to give them the victory. Hunter Murguia kicked off the scoring for the Redhawks in the 28th minute off a pass from Victoria Zaragoza. Murguia would then do some passing of her own, finding Karina Suarez, who accounted for three of the seven shots on goal for BenU Mesa, for the second goal of the game in the 58th minute.
The Redhawks returns to Cal Pac action on Saturday, heading to UC-Merced for a key conference showdown beginning at noon.
