Freshman Taylor Steinke (Findlay) knocked in a rebound midway through the first stanza, making it 3-1 at the 23:52 mark, but the home team answered with two more first half tallies for a commanding 4-goal spread at the break.
The shots were fast and furious with OWU putting up 35 attempts to 20 for the Beavers. Bluffton forced two more corner kicks (6-4) while Ohio Wesleyan was whistled for 10 more fouls (14-4).
Skylar Liming (St. Marys/Memorial) paced the offense with six shots, while freshman keeper Sienna Sullivan (Columbus/Hilliard Davidson) came up with eight saves for the visitors.
