Madeline Bishara found the back of the net twice during a 5-1 run to send JWU into the half up 12-2. Bishara has scored eight goals in her last two games.
Seven different players scored in the second half. Goalkeeper Cassidy O'Hara stopped all four shots she faced to shut the Falcons out in the final 30 minutes.
