Ellicottville (5-2, 5-1) first took the lead in the first half when Jayden Doutt finished off a pass from Audrey Hurlburt in the 28th minute.
The Eagles managed to hold that lead until Bowles scored her first goal in the 47th minute on a pass from Sara Smith. Randolph (7-2, 5-1) locked it down the rest of the way with Stella Smith making 15 saves in net until Bowles ended the game with her goal assisted by Sadie Steward.
Opposite Smith, Ellicottville keeper Courtney Marsh made 12 saves in net.
