The Bears slipped one through at 13:53 to temporarily stop the run, but F&M finished off the half with five straight and took a 12-2 lead into the break. 

Krohn got things started in the second with a goal at 26:21 before Kitty Dawson gave the Bears their third goal of the evening. Mitchell found Jorgenson at 22:12 and Ursinus scored two straight before the Diplomats rattled off four of their own to go up 18-5 with 7:50 left to play. Amber Moyer added the final goal for Ursinus at 3:09. 

Jen Noon had four ground balls and Shields caused three turnovers to pace the F&M defense. 

Kelsey Hoffman had three saves in 37 minutes of work and went to 10-3, Kaitlin Hardt had two stops in relief and Riley Pembroke took loss for the Bears.
