Binghamton women's lacrosse falls at Canisius 16-8
BUFFALO, N.Y.--Sophomore attack Whitney Card and freshman midfielder
Ashley Gray each tied a school record with six goals as Canisius
College defeated Binghamton 16-8 in a non-conference women's
lacrosse game Sunday afternoon at the Demske Sports Complex.
The host Golden Griffins (5-2)
jumped out to an early 1-0 lead before junior midfielder Anna Riordan (Yorktown Heights, N.Y.)
put the Bearcats (2-4) on the board with an unassisted tally
just two minutes into the contest.
From there on out, it was all
Canisius, as Gray and Card combined for seven scores spearheading
an impressive 9-1 surge to give the Griffins a commanding 10-2
edge after 30 minutes of action.
Binghamton's struggles continued in the second half, as Canisius
burst out of the gate scoring five of the first six goals of
the stanza to grab a 15-3 lead with less than 10 minutes remaining
in the contest. The Bearcats, however, would end the afternoon
on a positive note as they registered five of the contest's final
Sophomore midfielder Kristen
Marsjanik (Webster, N.Y.) led all Binghamton scorers with
two goals and an assist, while Riordan and senior Lauren
Wetherell (Bethpage, N.Y.) each netted a pair of scores for
the Bearcats. Wetherell, fresh off of Wednesday's five-assist
performance against American University, also added a game-high
seven ground balls.
Feller (Mahopac, N.Y.) and Julia Demuth
(Jordan, N.Y.) also scored for Binghamton.
Alvarez (Port Washington, N.Y.) had 15 saves between the
pipes for the Bearcats who were outshot by a 42-24 margin on
