Erica Carey scored from Becky Barritt in the 18th minute for a 3-0 lead. Duquesne's Dana Stimmel scored shortly after subbing into the contest from Katie Hensel for a 4-0 edge at 32:01 before Hensel notched a penalty kick goal at 33:11 for a 5-0 half-time lead and final.
The Red & Blue dominated the match taking 24 shots to the Penguins' four on the day. Duquesne out-shot Youngstown State 9-1 in the second half.
