Pre­vi­ously un­de­feated Kingston kept the match tight thanks to the great play of goal­keeper Abby Brocco. Scars­dale led 2-0 at half­time and it was 3-0 un­til with six min­utes re­main­ing de­spite its dom­i­nat­ing play.

Erin Ni­cholas had a goal and three as­sists and fresh­men Sophia Franco and El­iz­a­beth Scar­cella had two goals apiece to lead Scars­dale.

The match re­mained score­less un­til Franco con­nected on a scram­ble in front of the cage with 17:05 left in the half. It stayed 1-0 un­til Scar­cella

scored off a Ni­cholas cross­ing pass just be­fore half­time.

Brocco stopped a Ni­cholas blast, but Scar­cella banged in the re­bound to make it 3-0 8:30 into the sec­ond half. The Tiger de­fense and Brocco kept the Raiders at bay af­ter that. Franco and Ni­cholas tacked on goals in the fi­nal 5:30.

Kingston fin­ished the year with a 14-1-1 record. Bronxville 2, Ron­d­out 0

Goalie Court­ney Smith and the Ron­d­out de­fense did a ter­rific job han­dling Bronxville. The tone was set early in the match when Smith stopped a point-blank shot by Hadley Barr.

Kat Ung­vary was able to tap in a re­bound off a Smith save to give the

Bron­cos the lead 10:51 into the game. El­lie Walsh made it 2-0 with 2:38 left in the half.

The (12-4-3) Gan­ders had their best op­por­tu­nity early in the sec­ond half, ap­ply­ing pres­sure in the cir­cle and earn­ing four con­sec­u­tive penalty cor­ners. Ron­d­out, how­ever, failed to cap­i­tal­ize and Bronxville and its goalie, Katie Gor­don, main­tained the shutout. Lake­land 8, Red Hook 0

Un­de­feated Lake­land im­proved its record to 19-0-2 as it heads back to the fi­nal four.

Meghan Fa­hey had two goals and two as­sists, Cali Cortese and Kelsey McCrud­den each scored twice, Ju­lia Wana­maker and Mia Len­non had one goal each and Jes­sica As­cen­cao added an as­sist to lead Lake­land. The Hor­nets had a 6-0 lead by half­time.
