While the Garnet dominated play and outshot Farmingdale State 22-5 they were unable to get on past Ford (Elmont) who made five saves in the first and second halves.

The game-winning goal came in the 88th minute as Parrotta of Centereach scored from about 10 yards out after she got on the end of a long cross from freshman Kayla Duvenhorst of Levittown.

Farmingdale State’s victory over a ranked opponent comes just a day after the Rams fell 1-0 in overtime to No. 2 Williams, which is also the defending Division III National Champions. The game-winning goal was scored by Williams with less than three minutes remaining in overtime. In the loss, Ford made 10 saves.
