CHICAGO, Ill. - The Bluffton University men's soccer team fell to Benedictine University by a 3-0 count at Moody Bible College on Saturday, Sept. 3, 2011. It marked the second setback in as many days for the Beavers who return to Ohio with a 0-2 record. The Eagles improved to 1-1 following their victory.
