“Elmhurst is another good team, who still remains unbeaten.  However, we didn’t put together a whistle to whistle performance, as we were disappointed with some of the goals we conceded,” said head coach Michael Boland. “Going forward the last 3 tough opponents will only prep us for conference play which starts within the week.”

Benedictine’s women’s soccer lost to Elmhurst College on Wednesday evening. There goals in the first half of the game that were scored by Elmhurst. Another goal was made by Elmhurst in the second half.

Sophomore Danielle Melotte attempted five shots, while both sophomore Taylor Pokorny and freshmen Sabie Ramirez. The goalkeeper for the entire game, sophomore Amanda Lozada, stopped four goals.

“Unfortunately it took the first half for the team to realize we needed to pick up our pace, as a whole we didn’t play to our potential and it showed in the final score, but now we’re putting it behind us and learning from it as we begin focusing on our game against Rockford this upcoming Saturday,” said Pokorny.

The following game will be the start of the Northern Athletics Collegiate Conference (NACC) for women’s soccer, which will be held on campus against Concordia University Chicago on September 23 at 7:00 p.m.
