Boston University tops Binghamton 19-5
BOSTON, MASS. -- Host Boston University (7-5, 3-1 America East)
received a game-high five goals from junior Lauren Morton as
the Terriers topped Binghamton (1-10, 0-5 AE), 19-5, in America
East action on Saturday afternoon at Nickerson Field.
Morton scored three times in the contest's first six minutes
as the Terriers jumped out to an early 4-0 lead. Junior Leanne
Musso (Auburn, N.Y.) and freshman Erika
Travis (Geneva, N.Y.) combined for three goals in a 2:02
span to cut the deficit to 4-3 with 21:22 left to play in the
first half. Travis fed Musso to get the Bearcats on the board
at the 23:23 mark and before each added unassisted tallies to
fuel the spurt.
Boston, however, would respond emphatically, netting nine unanswered
goals as part of a 15-1 run to secure the victory.
Travis finished with a pair
of goals and an assist to pace the Bearcats. She has now scored
in five consecutive games, a span in which she has led the team
with 13 points (10 goals, 3 assists). Freshman Kate
Gromatsky (Smithtown, N.Y.) added a late score on a free
position attempt. Gromatsky now has eight goals on the season
and has scored in each of Binghamton's last four contests.
Junior Sandra Alvarez (Port Washington,
N.Y) got the nod between the pipes for the Bearcats, turning
away 12 Terrier attempts in a losing effort.
Binghamton returns to action
on Tuesday at St. Bonaventure at 4 p.m.
