The Lions rattled off four more goals in the first half to take a 9-1 lead heading into halftime.

Gianna Falcone made five saves in net for the Sea Gulls while collecting three groundballs. Allie Hynson led the defensive charge with two caused turnovers, two groundballs, and three draw controls, while Anna Wehland also caused two turnovers and came up with three groundballs.
