Welcome received a pass from Amanda Petfield and scored on a 12-yard shot that hit the far post and deflected over the line. It was third goal allowed this season by BCC (8-1-1).

Lauren Renaud made seven in the shutout for the Broncos.

Against Holyoke, Delhi took a 2-1 lead late in the first half on a goal by Margaretville graduate Megan McKenna. Teta Roberts set up McKenna’s goal.
