Lacey Marcoux next hit for Windsor as she extend the lead to 2-0 in the 31st minute. Fuerth then scored her second, just five minutes later, to stake the Lancers to a 3-0 half time lead.

The flood gates let loose in the second half as Windsor dominated with 7 uncontested goals en route to a 10-0 victory.

Cassie Chretien led the way with three 2nd half goals. Windsor also got a pair from Jenysis Gordon and singles from Jazmin Martin and Amber Hosker.

Chretien continued from where she left off with two fist half goals, along with Gordon and Patten Stephens.

It was Cara Cirovski’s turn in the second frame scoring two, including one from the penalty marker. Martin also tallied to complete the scoring.
