Kim Granito got MCLA on the board at the 18:39 mark, but Koralus would score the next four goals to push Sage out to a 10-1 lead.  The Gators would go on to lead 12-2 at halftime.

Sage put the game out of reach early in the second half by scoring the opening three goals to make it 15-2 and MCLA could get no closer than nine the rest of the way.

Granito and Natalie Caney each ended with three goals to lead the Trailblazer offense.  Zoe Elwell played the entire match and collected two saves.

Koralus scored her seven goals on just nine shots.  Sperl ended with four goals for Sage.  Jackie St. Pierre earned the win playing the first half for the Gators.
