A yellow card on Pino gave the Brown and Gold an extra man up opportunity in which they capitalized on, courtesy of Froccaro who put in her first of three goals in the game to give Adelphi a 3-2 lead.
Just 12 seconds later, Devan Crimi notched the third straight goal while Devito , Brown and Marissa Mills capped the scoring rout to make it a 7-2 contest with just over nine minutes left in the first.
Over the final five minutes, the Warriors netted two more goals, but Sara Sangiorgio responded with two goals of her own to keep the Panther lead at five as the two teams broke for the half.
The second half was highlighted by four and five-goal runs by the Panthers. Froccaro kicked off the second frame with a goal just 12 seconds in but Greenly struck back on a free position shot to keep it a five point game.
At 27:20, Crimi sparked what would be a four-goal run and was followed up by a Mills goal just five second later off the draw. Jaycox capped the run with two shots that found the back of the cage.
Merrimack scored three straight, but the Panthers came right back with five more unanswered goals. After exchanging a goal each to cap the game, Adelphi came out with their fifth straight win by a score of 20-9.
