First-year Marie Laverdiere (Springfield, Va./West Springfield) capitalized on a penalty stroke and Bendinelli lofted a shot into the cage, just over a minute later to give the Red Devils an 8-0 advantage, early in the second half.

First-year Emma Godfrey (Denver, Colo./Cherry Creek) closed out the scoring, finding the back of the cage on a rebound with just over 10 minutes to play.
