Despite finishing the game with a plethora of goals, men’s soccer only needed one as Biola defeated Marymount College on Friday, 3-0.

Carlos Ballesteros got the Eagles offensive production going early. Seven minutes into the game, the senior forward snagged a deflected shot by sophomore midfielder Stephen Tanquary and slammed it home. Marymount proceeded to outshoot the home squad over the rest of the half, 8-5, but were unable to draw level as the teams entered halftime with Biola leading 1-0.

Aside from a few flurries of excitement, neither team saw much production until the 71st minute, when Tanquary scored a goal of his own. Five minutes later, senior forward Daniel Chew scored his third goal in as many games to seal up the match for the Eagles.

Altogether, the Eagles outshot the Mariners, 15-13, and racked up five more corners than the visitors. Sophomore goalkeeper JT Addington locked in his second-straight shutout, finishing the game with three saves.

Biola will take on the Eagles of Oklahoma Wesleyan University on Friday at 7 p.m.
