BUFFALO, N.Y. - Sophomore Kara McHugh (Madison, Conn.) hit the game-winning goal with 21 seconds left in the game to earn Marist its first Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference (MAAC) win of the season with a 10-9 rout of Canisius. With the win, the Red Foxes improve to 7-2 overall and 1-0 in the MAAC.

Senior Jamie Romano (Kings Park, N.Y.), junior Lexi Brannigan (Loudonville, N.Y.), sophomore Allison Gionta (Eastport, N.Y.) and junior Kirsten Viscount (Smithtown, N.Y.) added one goal each. Freshman Natalie Bonaroti (Pittsburgh, Pa.) had the lone assist of the game. Freshman goalkeeper Abigail Witczak (Mendham, N.Y.) had eight saves in the net for Marist.

Canisius opened up scoring to take an early 1-0 lead thanks to a goal by Taylor Giglio. Four consecutive goals by four different Red Foxes pushed Marist ahead 4-1 with 7:25 to go in the first half. Tori Quinn netted her lone goal of the game for the Griffs with 1:45 left in the half to cut Canisius' deficit to two.
