It wasn't quite the record-tying 12-0 win against RMC from a few weeks ago, but uOttawa nevertheless defeated the Paladins 5-0 on Friday afternoon at Navy Bay in Kingston, Ont.
The first half was relatively quiet for the Garnet and Grey, until Walsh broke through in the 40th minute to open the scoring.
Walsh played a key role in the team's second goal, which came shortly after the start of the second half. She found Nibo Dlamini for the latter's first goal since returning from a midseason injury.
The scoring was capped off by Oriente finding the net twice and Ella Chase earning her first career goal as a Gee-Gee.
Goalkeeper Juliann Lacasse made her first league appearance in Garnet and Grey, keeping a clean sheet.
With the victory, the Gee-Gees end the regular season with a 9-0-1 record, the lone blemish coming in a draw to Carleton.
