Binghamton women's lacrosse drops conference opener to No. 13 Boston University 11-8

Box Score

VESTAL, N.Y.-- Senior McKinley Curro scored four goals and added an assist leading Boston (5-4, 1-0 AE) to a 11-8 win over Binghamton (0-6, 0-1 AE) in an America East conference women's lacrosse game on Saturday afternoon at the Bearcats Sports Complex.

Boston quickly found the back of the net only 24 seconds into the game, however junior midfielder
Beth Moore knotted the score again with 22:35 left in the first half. The rest of the first half was all junior attack Ali Castiglie who scored three unassisted goals to lead Binghamton to a 5-2 lead at the half.

The stunned Terriers came out firing in the second half, outscoring the Bearcats 9-3 including a run of five in a row. Freshman Lindsay Angelillo scored a pair of loff two free position shots while Moore added the Bearcats final goal with 1:32 remaining in the game.

Boston converted 5-11 free position shots while Binghamton only attempted five, scoring on two. The Terriers also outshot Binghamton 28-23 including 18-12 in the second half.

"I'm really proud of the way we played today against a ranked team," said head coach Tony Zostant after the game. "The team believes in themselves, made significant strides today and we played for 60 minutes."



Binghamton remains at home for the last game of a season-high three game home span when the Bearcats host Colgate on Tuesday at 4 p.m.
