The Lasers made it a 2-0 game in the 65th minute when sophomore forward Luci Bernal scored off another cross from Belman.

IVC added to its lead in the 73rd minute when Hayes scored her second goal of the game. She took hold of a loose ball just outside the top of the Norco box and flicked it over the keeper's head an in to give Irvine Valley a 3-0 advantage.

And sophomore midfielder Karla Rodriguez capped the scoring for IVC in the 84th minute.

Freshman midfielder Jaqueline Losada took a shot that was saved by the Norco goalie, but Rodriguez was there to knock the rebound in for the first goal in her IVC career.

IVC freshman goalie Marissa Banos had to make just one save in the contest for the Lasers.
