The Red Dragons won their fourth straight and improved to 7-5 overall and 4-0 in the conference, while the Mustangs fell to 3-7 and 0-5.

Freshman Bri Shost (Mahopac) scored twice and freshmen Beth Cutia (Cortland) and Emily Soderquist (Watertown) each had a goal. Sophomore goalie Deanne Abell (Fulton/G.
