Jordan Holton sparked the Bulldogs in the first half with nine points and Caitlin Dusenbury five.
Lincoln scored four early points in third, but the Bulldogs would end up outscoring them 20-6 in the quarter. Jenna Fosdick had six points in the quarter as the Chelsea lead grew to 60-13 and the Bulldogs cruised to the win.
AJ Fullerton led the Bulldogs with 13 points, while Fosdick and Maddie Vasquez each had 10. Holton finished with nine, Riley Davis eight, Dusenbury seven, Helena Schultz six, Madeleine Kennedy and Kyle Bragg three each, Jessica Emmert and Kiersten Anstead two apiece.
