Kamide got the Dolphins on the scoreboard just 56 seconds into the game after taking a pass from freshman midfielder Laura Hoffman (Canandaigua, N.Y./Canandaigua). Just under seven minutes later, senior All-American midfielder Brittany Brigandi (Syracuse, N.Y./Christian Brothers Academy/UMass) doubled Le Moyne's lead by scoring off a free-position shot.
