Binghamton women's lacrosse falls to No.11 Boston University 16-5

Box Score

BOSTON, Mass. -- Junior Traci Landy produced a career-best six goals to lead 11th-ranked Boston University over the Binghamton women's lacrosse team (3-11, 0-5 AE) 19-5 on Saturday afternoon at Nickerson Field. With the win, Boston clinched its fifth straight America East regular-season title.

Boston started strong scoring nine straight and shutting out the Bearcats until sophomore Beth Moore scored with 13:47 to go in the first. Freshman Meg Brown, who led the Bearcats with two goals, scored Binghamton's only other goal of the half at the 12:46 mark. The Terriers carried a 15-2 edge into halftime.

Sophomore Ali Castiglie opened up second half play with a goal, and freshman Riley Newman and Brown would also score to hold Boston to a 4-3 advantage in the second half.

The Terriers enjoyed a 26-4 shot advantage in the first half and would convert on three of four free position shots. However, Binghamton edged Boston in the second half, out shooting the Terriers 8-6.

"It was a tale of two halves…We played 27 minutes of straight defense and you can't win that way," head coach Tony Zostant commented after the game. "It's just a consistency thing, we need to come out and play for sixty minutes… Boston is undefeated in conference play for a reason; they are very skilled and played well. Our defensive unit played well in the second half."

Binghamton returns home for the final two games of the season hosting Marist on Tuesday April 21 at 4 p.m. and wraps up conference play next Saturday April 25 with New Hampshire at 1 p.m.
