Senior attacker Brenna Bauer tallied five points on three goals and two assists to lead the way for Le Moyne, which heads into next week's Northeast-10 Championship as the top seed.

With the loss, Franklin Pierce wraps up its season at 3-12 (2-10 Northeast-10), while Le Moyne improves to 14-2 (11-1 Northeast-10).
