Sophomore Kelsey Garrity (Somerville, Mass.) dealt out a game-high six assists for the Corsairs, many of them going to Moriarty.
Freshman Taylor Perry (Simsbury, Conn.) and junior Krystin Corliss (Loudon, N.H.) paced Plymouth State with 13 and 11 points, respectively. Sophomore Tiffany Lewis (Hillsboro, N.H.) grabbed a team-high six rebounds for the Panthers.
