Benedictine's women's soccer team dominated versus Franklin College, despite only having a 1-0 victory margin to show for it. It was the third-consecutive win for the Eagles. Benedictine out-shot the Grizzlies by a 37-to-1 margin in the match and played most of the contest on Franklin's side of the field. Junior speedster Kimyenna Abron tallied the Eagles' lone goal at the 40:05 mark of the match. Sophomore Lauren Omsberg assisted on what would be the match-winning goal. Frankllin goalkeeper Haley Wise was peppered by the Benedictine attack. Wise had 19 saves to keep the score close for her team.
