Sophomore Abbey Shoen (Waddington, N.Y.) had a solid all-around game with nine points, four rebounds and two blocks. Junior Brittany Kenyon (Hammond, N.Y.) added seven points, six rebounds and three assists.
The Raiders were led by Brittany McMillon who had 16 points, six rebounds and four steals. Marissa Bunce contributed 15 points and six assists.
