L-R junior defender Kayla Stamey (Hudson, N.C.) gave the Bears a 2-0 advantage at the 10:45 mark of the first half as she headed the ball into the net off a free kick from junior defender Hanna Kiebel (Parker, Colo.).
From there, Dunn reeled off three consecutive penalty kick goals while sophomore defender Amber Madriaga (Wailuku, Hawaii) rounded out the scoring in the second half for the Bears.
Lenoir-Rhyne junior goalkeeper Genny Little (Fredericksburg, Va.) improved to 6-0 on the season after stopping a pair of shots while the Bears held a 24-5 advantage in shots taken as well.
