McGloin scored in the 11th minute, followed by Keegan-Twombly in the 16th minute. Sophomore forward Meg Dowd notched her first goal of the season and junior forward Michaela Donohue scored in the 23rd minute to round out the first half.

The Bombers scored three more goals in the second half, one each by Dowd, freshman forward and midfielder Kendall Keil and senior forward and midfielder Lauren Delia. The Bombers pounded 44 shots on the Wells goalkeeper senior Sydney Line. Sophomore backs Maddie Keppel, Maddy Ryan and senior back Jess Smith anchored a strong Ithaca defense.
