Mary Beth Barnosky and Grace Mehr both netted 13 points each for the Chargers. Senior Jessica Meagher scored ten points while Lizzie Vignuolo added nine. Courtney Potter and Julie Raba contributed four each. Maria Izzo, Erin Malin and Paige Sheehy all chipped in two points to help nail down a much-needed win.
