To make things worse for the Atlas Lionesses, the squad had only one opportunity at the attack, but it was far off target.
Ibtissam Jraidi nearly had an opportunity for Morocco but failed to control the attempt.
With no signs of letting up, the French curled in a deep cross, nailing another goal in the 70th minute.
The Herve Renard led-squad almost made it five as Elisa De Almeida struck a shot that hooked up over the bar in the last few minutes of the match.
