“We had control the whole game,” said Delhi coach Bob Leary, whose team ranks eighth among NJCAA programs.

McNally’s winner was the end result of a turnover caused by Randal Cook. Donodeo took control of the ball and passed it ahead to Caroline Tulley, who found McNally behind Farmingdale’s defense.
