The Rebelettes tacked on one more goal before the end of the half as Kara McDaniel scored with 38 seconds left in the period for her eighth goal of the season.

They led 4-0 at halftime.

The Rebelettes continued their offensive momentum in the second half as Chyenna Luttrell scored just three minutes after the halftime break to make it a 5-0 game. The goal was her fourth of the campaign.

The final score of the day came with about 31 minutes remaining as Mariah Shull netted her second goal of the season to put the final lead at six.

With the win, the Rebelettes improved to 11-3-2 on the season.
