RIT tacked on another goal in the 65th minute when Kasey Dobrodziej scored on a corner kick play with assists going to Chelsea Shoemaker and Pezze.

In the contest, Oswego State was outshot 12-6 and only took one corner kick compared to the six taken by the Tigers. Lyndaker posted five saves in the game for the Lakers, while RIT’s Ashley Valenti and Alyssa Henkel combined to make two saves for the shutout.
