The Wildcats' sixth straight win moved them to 8-3 overall and 7-0 in CACC play, clinching at least a share of the CACC Regular Season Championship and will be the No. 1 seed in the CACC Tournament. They will host one of the semifinals at the WU Athletics Complex on Wednesday, May 1.

On Wednesday, the Wildcats scored the first six goals of the game and scored seven goals in both the first and second quarters to lead 14-3 at the halftime break.

Stinson added his third of the quarter to close out the scoring, giving the Wildcats a 7-2 lead.

The Wildcats scored the first five goals of the second quarter as well, opening up a 12-2 lead with 7:09 to play.
