Broome held a 1-0 lead against Genesee CC for nearly 80 minutes before giving up the game-tying goal in the North District B Region III DIII Championship match played in Batavia on Saturday. Nine minutes later the Cougars struck again with the winning goal, both off the foot of Chloe Barrett and both unassisted.

With the game seemingly headed into OT, and 1:12 left on the clock, the Cougars were awarded a free kick at the top of the 18 yard box for the 2-1 final.

Briana McQuade and Arianna Michitti were named to the All Tournament Team for their efforts in the game.
