Oregon State was at it again about 10 minutes later when Chelsea Buckland slid a ball towards the box and Jessica Niewoehner fired it into the net past Erica Correa (Cheshire, Conn.), giving the Beavers a 2-0 edge going into the second half.

Jenna Richardson set up the play when she delivered a pass to Shaw, who sent the ball into the low corner of the net for her second goal of the season.
Just minutes later, Oregon State extended its lead when Jacy Drobney scored to put the Beavers up 4-0. Shaw ignited the play, placing a ball in the box to Drobney, who put it into the back of the net at 65:09.
