The Lions made it 3-0 in the 57th minute on Nyquist's second of the game, a one-time shot off a pass by sophomore Victoria Hern (Salem, N.H.).

Eastern Nazarene added three more, including Fry's second of the game, in the final 16 minutes on the way to the 6-0 win.

Lions freshman Sarah Moschini (Upton, Mass.) takes the win, improving to 6-7-1. Sass made 12 saves on the afternoon but takes the loss in goal.
