The No. 15 Raven Men's Soccer team used a two-goal second half to secure the win on Wedneday night as they earned a 3-1 win over Bethany College (0-3-1).
Benedictine (5-0-1) finished the night with an 18-8 advantage in shots and held the Swedes to just one shot on goal in the second half on Wednesday night en route to their fourth straight in.
The Ravens scoring effort got started during the 39th minute when John Mullen played a ball across the top of the box to Leonardo Armondo, who was able to beat Bethany keeper Logan Galvin.
Bethany was able to pull square with Benedictine during the 44th minute to send the game into halftime tied at 1-1.
Benedictine held a 6-1 advantage in the second half in shots on goal but it took until the 63rd minute to break through against Galvin for the first time in the second half when Adam James scored his lone goal on the night.
The Ravens added a third goal during the 66th minute on a throw in from Trayton Schafer. Schafer put the ball in front of the goal where Calum James was able to deflect it to the feet of Ryan Dickerson who beat Galvin inside the near post.
Caleb Jenkins earned the win in goal for the Ravens playing the full 90 minutes. After giving up the first-half goal, he finished the night with four saves as Bethany was limited to just one shot on goal during the second half.
Wednesday's win was the final tune up for the Ravens as they open conference play on Saturday. Benedictine travels to Fayette, Mo., to take on (RV) Central Methodist University for a 7:30 p.m. match to open up Heart play. CMU has also won four straight after dropping their season-opener to Columbia (Mo.) College.
