Nicole Viscardo led a balanced attack for the Red Storm with 11 points. Megan Kilroy and Katy Buckley added eight points each and Jennifer Ward, seven.

Saranac Lake missed out on an opportunity to win the game as regulation time expired.

“It was tied at 37-all and we had the ball with 20 seconds left,” Saranac Lake coach David Zerrahn said. “We were able to get the ball down low but missed a shot from five feet out.

“Dominic then scored all their points in overtime on three 2-pointers and two foul shots. It was a back-and-fourth game and an exciting one.”
