Hopkinton’s Courtney Benson had a goal and two assists to lead the No. 24 Southern New Hampshire University women’s soccer team to a 3-0 win against Post University on Wednesday. The four-point game is a career high for Benson.

Benson’s corner kick in the 10th minute banged off the near post but went straight to Shae Roys at the top of the box, and she converted for the game’s first goal and Benson’s first assist. Another strange corner kick just five minutes later led to Benson’s goal as her service bounced off a Post defender and into the net. The final goal came off yet another Benson corner kick less than two minutes into the second half.
