Even the chilly winds in Rockford on Wednesday could not cool down the red-hot Benedictine women's soccer team as it rolled to an 11-0 victory over host Rockford College. The Eagles improved to 9-4-1 overall - 7-3-1 in the Northern Athletics Conference - and are unbeaten in their last nine matches Benedictine built a 5-0 halftime cushion and added six more goals in the second period. In all, the Eagles out-shot the Regents by a 44-6 margin. Sophomore Lauren Omsberg had another huge match, scoring three goals and one assist. Kimyenna Abron kept pace with Omsberg for the team lead in goals scored by also tallying the "hat trick" of three goals. Omsberg and Abron each have 12 goals on the year. Nikki Aidinovski had two goals. Melissa Swanson, Kiera Vizza and Jenny Walther each tallied single goals. Swanson had one assist, while Julie Harshbarger gave off a pair of assists.
