Sophomore Monica Santelli scored her fourth goal of the season, but the Lakeland College women's soccer team came up short in a 3-1 loss to Benedictine University Saturday afternoon in Lisle, Ill.
Santelli (Pleasant Prairie) got the Muskies (3-6, 2-2) on the board first in the 19th minute of action. Benedictine answered off a corner kick in the 31st minute to tie the game at one. The Eagles struck again in the 44th minute to take a 2-1 lead at halftime.
Benedictine would strike again in the 74th minute to earn the Northern Athletics Conference victory.
"We played very well and the team is really starting to come together," said head coach Tony Pierce. "We scored the first goal, but then we got away from what we've been successful with. In the second half we created chances, but unfortunately they scored late in the game. The girls are playing good soccer; we just have to continue playing well."
Sophomore goalkeeper Ashley Sarbacker (Middleton) recorded six saves as she faced 15 shots.
The Muskies return to action on Sept. 28 as they host Beloit College in a non-conference match. Game time is set for 4:30 p.m.
