Torrey scored twice in the final 11 minutes as the Eagles outscored Oneonta, 4-2, to take a 9-7 halftime advantage.

The second half saw Oneonta come out swinging, tying the score at 9-9 with 23 minutes left. But the Eagles were able to score the next five goals to put the game away, led by two from Torrey. 

The Eagles were outshot, 32-24, and saw junior Danielle Guigli (Wellesley, Mass., Wellesley) record 11 saves.
