Johnstown, NY – The Lady Hornets of Broome CC came to FM on Saturday as the #1-ranked team in the National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) weekly national rankings. The team from New York's Southern Tier lived up to their reputation, blanking the FM squad 8-0.

Broome simply had too much firepower for the young Raiders. Still, the Raiders played some good defense, and goaltender Sisina Macchiarelli made several impressive saves.
FM will continue to look for their first win when they travel to SUNY Delhi on Wednesday.
