Binghamton women's lacrosse falters in second half, loses 14-11 at Canisius
BUFFALO, N.Y.-- Freshman attack Lauren Walsh recorded a game-high five goals, powering Canisius (3-1) to a 14-11 come-from-behind win over Binghamton (1-4) in a non-conference women's lacrosse game under snowy weather conditions on Wednesday afternoon. The loss was the second in a row for the Bearcats.
Binghamton was up 8-6 at the half, but the host Griffs stormed back in the second half and scored eight of the final 11 goals of the game. Walsh had three of her goals during the run.
"We did not take care of the ball in the second half," head coach Emily Edmonston said. "When we did, (Canisius) kept it away from us and they were able to control the game. We started off great but we did not do the basic things in the second half."
Binghamton was led once again by sophomore attack Danielle Edwards (Horseheads, N.Y.) who had a team-high three goals and two assists. Fellow sophomore attack Anna Riordan (Yorktown Heights, N.Y.) added two goals and two assists.
Edwards and Riordan each scored twice during the Bearcats' solid first half. The squad jumped out to a 4-1 lead in the opening 10 minutes and scored seven of the game's first 11 goals.
In the second half, however, the tables were turned. After sophomore midfielder Lauren Chemotti (Skineatles, N.Y.) put Binghamton up 9-6 with 27:06 remaining in the second half, Canisius scored six unanswered goals in a span of 13:48. Walsh finished the run by scoring back-to-back goals to make the score 12-9 with 10:19 remaining.
The Bearcats played Canisius even the rest of the game but by that point, the damage had been done.
Canisius outsthot Binghamton 40-24 for the game, including 19-6 in the decisive second half.
Binghamton hosts Quinnipiac at 1 p.m. on Saturday.
