After taking a week off from competition due to a postponed trip to Mount Mercy University over the weekend, the No. 9-ranked Raven Women's Soccer team returned to the BC Soccer Complex with a season-high goal total as they hosted Avila University.
Benedictine (6-2, 2-1 Heart) earned a 6-1 win over Avila (2-6-1, 0-3 Heart) to start off a two-match home stand at the BC Soccer Complex.
It took until the 33rd minute for the Ravens to notch its first tally on the scoreboard but from that point, Benedictine scored five additional goals over the next 56 minutes of play.
Olivia Meyers and Emily Ambuul scored Benedictine's first two goals as Meyers struck first during the 33rd minute while Ambuul pushed the Ravens advantage to 2-0 at the break with a goal during the 45th minute.
Meyer's extended the Ravens lead to three goals during the 63rd minute before Sydney Routh added a pair of goals within three minutes of each other.
Routh's scoring effort was sandwiched around the Eagles' lone goal. She scored her first goal during the 75th minute and then added her second goal during the 77th minute off an assist from Ambuul.
Kat Reis scored the final goal of the match for the Ravens during the 89th minute to round out the Ravens best offensive day of the season.
Benedictine held a 20-5 advantage in shots and an 8-3 advantage in shots on goal.
