Sami Scoles extended the advantage to 3-0 with a score in the 12th minute.

Eachus netted her second goal in the 45th minute on a feed from Makayla Schweingruber. 

The Pirate offense peppered Cory with 53 shots, 22 of which were on goal. C-R got off 10 shots, four of which were on targe.

Pirate junior keeper Julia Mehaffie made four saves in goal. The busy C-R keeper was credited with 16 stops.

Bluffton's final conference match is a makeup contest at home vs. Ada (2-9-1, 0-4-1 NWC) Wednesday night, Oct. 13.
