Corning scored late in the first half when freshman Jamie Cook netted her first goal of the game. 

FM upped their lead in the second half when Hadland fired a shot that deflected off a fullback and into the goal. Corning's Cook scored again late in the game, but FM's defense held, and the Lady Raiders won 3-2. 

Raider goalkeeper Heather Staelens saved nine shots, one of which was a key save of a penalty shot. 

The FM Eleven will close out their home season today with a 1:00 p.m. match with Niagara CCC.
