The Lady Eagles' lead grew to 33-22 early in the fourth quarter before Niskayuna made its move. The Silver Warriors went on a 12-1 run -- capped by consecutive three-pointers from Ashley McCaughan -- to tie the game at 34.
Bethlehem took the lead on three different occasions after McCaughan's second three, but each time Niskayuna tied the game before McGrath finally ended matters with her only official basket.
"Niskayuna is a very well-coached team, and I knew they would claw their way through," said Bixby.
Oskam scored 14 points, and Murphy contributed 12 points for Bethlehem. McCaughan had 16 points to lead Niskayuna.
