Junior forward Ariel Dominguez (Annapolis, Md.), who assisted on L-R's first goal, pushed the Bears' lead to three with a score in the 68th minute. Dominguez kicked in a saved shot for her second goal of the year.
Queens' goalkeeper, Emily Mager (Lawrenceburg, Ky.), took the loss despite tallying 12 saves but the Bears held a 35-6 advantage in shots taken.
