Leading Scorers:  Bengals – Emily Erickson 29      Lizzie Machnick 14          Mohon – Breanna Lott 23     Kateri Vumbaco 19     Megan Hart 11

Key Stat:  Tied after three periods of play Tamarac used an 18-14 advantage in the fourth to turn back a tough Mohan squad and notch the season-opening “W”.
