EUREKA — The Eureka men's soccer team battled with Blackburn on a cold, wet and windy late night at McKinzie Field.

Eureka goalkeeper Bryer Beadles (Mattoon, Ill./Mattoon) made 10 saves for the Red Devils in 90 minutes in the net and Diego Cintora (Watseka, Ill./Watseka) recorded a shot on goal.

The Beavers had five players find the back of the net: Luke Atkinson, Michael Rodriguez, Hayden Reese, Jordan Leihser and Jamie Jose Pineda. As a team, they put 15 shots on goal.
