Sophomore Allie Benadon (Hillsborough, N.J./Hillsborough) registered the first multi-goal game of her career including the game-winner with 2:10 left in the first overtime as The University of Scranton field hockey team picked up a 2-1 overtime victory at Catholic on Saturday. The Hillsborough, N.J., native also added an assist in a 3-0 win versus Wilkes and has been named Landmark Conference Offensive Athlete of the Week.

Head coach Colleen Moyer broke the program record for all-time coaching victories (154) in Wednesday's 3-0 victory over Wilkes.

Benadon becomes the second Royals player to be named Offensive Athlete of the Week after senior Gracie McClatchy (Havertown, Pa./Archbishop Carroll) received the honor on Sept. 16.

The sophomore leads the team with five goals, a total that is tied for fourth in the Landmark Conference and also ranks fourth in the conference in points (12).

Scranton hosts Albright in a non-conference matchup on Wednesday, Oct. 2 at Weiss Field at 7 p.m.
