Binghamton women's lacrosse falls at the hands of Albany 21-10

Box Score

ALBANY, N.Y.--Junior midfielder Kate Fontana recorded a game-high four goals and one assist and teammates Julie Bush and Katie DeJoseph both added three scores to lead Albany to a 21-10 victory over Binghamton in America East conference action on Saturday afternoon at John Fallon Field.

The host Great Danes (7-5, 1-2 AE) got off to a quick start as Fontana and Bush each found the net in the contest's opening three minutes fueling an early 3-0 Albany advantage.

Junior Danielle Edwards (Horseheads, N.Y.) would get the Bearcats on the board scoring at the 26:34 mark. Once again, however, the duo of Fontana and Bush struck, delivering consecutive goals to stretch the lead to 5-1.

With under six minutes left in the half and now trailing by a 7-2 margin, Leanne Musso (Auburn, N.Y.) cut the deficit to 7-4 with a pair of back-to-back scores in a 1:23 span.

But in much the same way as they began the period, Albany responded with three goals in the final 3:44 to thwart the Bearcat rally and grab a comfortable six-goal edge after 30 minutes of action.

In the second half, the Danes again started strongly, using yet another 3-0 run to stretch the lead to 13-4 and dismiss much of Binghamton's hope for a potential comeback bid.

"I was pretty happy with the girl's efforts today," said head coach Emily Edmonston. "We did some nice things while we transitioned the ball leading to some scoring opportunities, which was encouraging to see."

Overall for the Bearcats, senior tri-captain Lauren Wetherell (Bethpage, N.Y.) finished with a game-high six points (one goal, five assists) while junior Heather Grose (Yorktown Heights, N.Y.), sophomore Leanne Musso (Auburn, N.Y.) and freshman Julia Demuth (Jordan, N.Y.) each finished with two scores. Musso also added a pair of assists.

Sophomore Sandra Alvarez (Port Washington, N.Y.) had 14 saves between the pipes for the Bearcats, who were outshot by a 46-22 margin on the afternoon.

Binghamton returns home to host reigning America East conference champion Boston University on Wednesday afternoon at 1 p.m.

Notes: Julia Demuth has now scored in seven straight games, while Heather Grose has scored in the last six.
