The No. 24-ranked Raven women's soccer team earned a 5-2 season-opening win on Monday night behind a three goal effort from junior forward Jordan Francescon.
Williams Woods (0-1) struck first, scoring the first goal of the match during the third minute off an unassisted goal scored by Sarah Krispin.
Hair's goal sparked an offensive outpouring that saw Francescon score two straight off assists from Bridget Brotherton (20') and Hair (36') to stake the Ravens to a 3-1 lead at the half.
In the second half, Bethany Smith added an unassisted goal during the the 50th minute before Francescon capped off the scoring for Benedictine with a goal during the 51st minute.
William Woods tallied another unassisted goal, this time from Jordan McNamara during the 58th minute but couldn't push anything more past the trio of Benedictine keepers who shared minutes during the win.
Ashley Holland earned the win for the Ravens, sharing time in goal with reserve keepers Adrienne Korson and Kaitlin Hintz. Holland tallied 73 minutes in goal before Korson and Hintz finished off the match.
Benedictine held a 14-3 advantage in shots, which led to a 11-3 advantage in shots on goal.
Benedictine heads out on the road for their next match at 5 p.m. Thursday in McPherson against McPherson College.
