Bearcats overpower Canisius 15-8
VESTAL, N.Y.--Binghamton's recent offensive outburst continued on Saturday, and the Bearcats (2-3) defeated visiting Canisius (0-3) 15-8 from East Gym Field. The win was the second in three games for Binghamton, which leads the America East in goals per game.
"We played more together today," head coach Sue Frost said. "We were patient on offense, and used our plays instead of rushing. Christa Quon had a phenomenal game in goal. She was definitely our player of the game."
Freshman Becky Green (Altamont, N.Y./Guilderland) and sophomore Lauren Wetherell (Bethpage, N.Y.) each tallied three goals and four assists for Binghamton. America East Rookie of the Week Anna Riordan (Yorktown Heights, N.Y./Yorktown) added a pair of goals, as did sophomore Allison Lak (Nassau, N.Y./Columbia).
Freshman Amanda Marts and senior Shannon Taylor each netted three goals for the Golden Griffins, while freshmen Anne McNall and Brittany Farrugia scored one apiece.
Green opened the scoring just 1:02 into the game with an unassisted goal. Just over three minutes later, however, Canisius notched a pair of goals just 14 seconds apart to take its only lead of the game. The Bearcats scored three unanswered goals in a span of 7:45, only to see the Golden Griffins again record back-to-back scores in just over a minute. However, with the game tied 4-4 at the 17:36 mark of the first half, Binghamton went on the offensive. The Bearcats scored 10 unanswered goals and held Canisius off the scoreboard until just under 10 minutes were left in the game.
Senior goalie Christa Quon (Vestal, N.Y.) earned the decision in goal with 17 saves. Freshman keeper Rasheeda Brenton made 14 saves for the Golden Griffins.
After a brief layoff, Binghamton returns to action on Monday afternoon with a road contest against Marist. Game time is set for 3 p.m. as the Bearcats and Red Foxes square off for the first time ever.
