F&M came out and put two goals up in the first half, before netting three more in the second to produce its largest offensive output so far this season.
In the 26th minute, Sarah George stole the ball from a Washington defender and sent a pass to Daniels on the right side, who fired her shot into the left corner for her first goal of the season.
With 1:16 left in the opening half, Shannon Summers took a shot from the top of the box and sent it through Caroline Grier's hands for a 2-0 lead.
The final goal came via penalty kick in the 79th minute, taken by Danielle David for her team-leading fourth goal of the season.
The win marked the fourth for goalkeeper Erin Roy, who was only challenged by one shot on the afternoon. Grier tallied five saves in the loss.
