"When you've got as young of a group as us, it's going to take some time," said Cacckello. "We're definitely going through some growing pains right now."
Erin Mossop -- the lone senior on Guilderland's roster -- scored six points to lead a balanced attack. Four more Lady Dutch players scored five points apiece, but nobody could get into an offensive rhythm against Colonie's defense.
"We knew what we were in for tonight, but we didn't handle it well," said Cacckello.
Colonie's next game is Tuesday against undefeated Bethlehem, while Guilderland meets Columbia.
