Bedford jumped out to an 11-2 lead after one and outscored Dexter 19-7 in the second to take a commanding 21-point halftime lead and never looked back.
Dexter outscored Bedford 14-11 to cut the lead to 41-23 after three but they would get no closer and fell to 0-1 in the Red.
Sophomore Kendall Cabana was one of the few bright spots for the Dreads, hitting three triples and finishing with 11 points.
Chloe Perry led the Dreadnaughts with 15 points, while Addison Chase added seven. Alyssa Gullekson and Heidi Fuchs chipped in with two each for Dexter.
