Erin Pittenger scored the next two for the Panthers, before Amy Yandow put Castleton on the board with 2:12 remaining in the first half.
Caity Abshere scored with a rocket from the outside, before Tracy Stala answered for the Spartans at 76:50. Pfaff scored the game's final two goals to make it an 8-2 contest.
