Binghamton women's lacrosse defeats American University 12-10
Edwards' career-high five goals leads Bearcat women to second straight triumph

Box Score

WEST PALM BEACH, FLA.--Junior attack Danielle Edwards (Horseheads, N.Y.) netted a career-high five goals, leading Binghamton (2-3) to a 12-10 win over American in their final game at the Spring Fling lacrosse event in West Palm Beach, Fla. With the victory, the Bearcats have now won back-to-back contests for first time in the program's five-year history.

"This was a well-deserved win for our team," head coach Emily Edmonston said. "We played a great first half and even though American picked up the pace in the second half, we didn't panic."

The Bearcats raced out to 7-1 halftime lead and continued their relentless attack with three straight tallies to extend the lead to 10-1 early in the second period of play. The Eagles, however, would storm back to pull within 11-10 in the final minute.

But it ultimately went all for naught, as Edwards' final goal with 22 seconds remaining proved to be the backbreaker. The Bearcats proceeded to win the ensuing draw control and run out the clock. Edwards, a second-team all-conference selection in 2005, previously had notched four goals four times during her career.

Sophomore midfielder Leanne Musso (Auburn, N.Y.) added three goals to continue her impressive spring, while junior attack Heather Grose (Yorktown Heights, N.Y.) chipped in with a pair of finishes.

For American, senior midfielder Moriah Linnell led the way with four goals.

Edmonston and the Bearcat women will look to continue their winning ways on Sunday when they head to Canisius for a 1 p.m. contest.
