It was a scoreless first half as neither squad had too many promising opportunities. The Huskies took over control at the beginning at the second half, ending the game outshooting Loyola Marymount 13-4.
Goalkeeper Olivia Sekany wasn't challenged too often as she only had to make one save during the contest.
With the loss, Loyola Marymount moved to 0-4 to begin their year.
UW is back in action at home on Thursday night at 6 p.m. to take on Portland.
