Box Score

HIGH POINT, N.C. -- The Binghamton University women's lacrosse team began its five-game road trip this evening in High Point, North Carolina. The Bearcats fell to High Point 13-10 in a non-conference game from Vert Stadium. Binghamton's record falls to 1-7 on the season, as High Point extended it's win streak to five and are now 6-2.

High Point, in its first season at the Division I level, held off multiple second-half surges by the Bearcats. BU cut the halftime deficit of five to two on several occasions in the second half, but the Panther's offensive firepower was too much. High Point's leading scorer, Grace Gaeng, tallied six points (four goals, two assists) on the day for the Panthers.

Down five to begin the second half, the Bearcats strung together three straight goals to close within two. Sophomore midfielder Katherine Hunsberger scored just 41 seconds into the half on a nicely timed pass from junior Lis Zuern. Senior and BU all-time goals leader, Beth Moore netted the next two goals for Binghamton, making the score 7-5. High Point, feeling the momentum shifting in BU's direction, tallied two goals in under 30 seconds pushing its lead back to four.

Binghamton would not be discourgared by the quick hits from High Point, putting two more on the Panther defense to close within two, again. Moore, finding the back of the net for the third time in the game, made the score 9-6. Senior attack Ali Castiglie, dodged a couple High Point defenders to receive a pass from Zuern to record the second hat trick on the day for BU. High Point however, would counter to push their lead back to three, 10-7.

BU, not going away, responded right back cutting lead to two for the third time of the half on Moore's fourth goal of the game. It wasn't enough however, as High Point would go on to score the three more goals and pull away from the Bearcats. Binghamton scored eight of its ten goals in the second half, outscoring High Point 8-6 in the final 30 minutes.

In the first half Binghamton led 2-1 at the 21:17 mark on a pair of goals from Castiglie. From there the Binghamton offense would stall, going scoreless for the rest of the half allowing High Point to take advantage. The Panthers scored six goals during the BU drought, taking a 7-2 halftime lead.

Moore would end her day with five goals and an assists, tying her best point output of her career. Zuern handed out three assists for BU, while sophomore Lindsay Angelillo netted her second goal of the season.

The box score read fairly even for the Bearcats as the shot total was 27-25 in favor of the Panthers. Binghamton hustled its way to 30 ground balls to High Point's 32 and committed 23 turnovers opposed to High Point's 21. The Panthers did hold a distinct advantage in saves and draw controls. High Point stopped ten shots on goal and picked up 15 draw controls. BU only kept six shots out of the net and tallied 10 draw controls.

The Bearcats have a quick turnaround, leaving High Point immediately after the game and making the hour-and-a-half trip to Davidson College, just outside Charlotte. Binghamton will face the Davidson Wildcats tomorrow night at 6 p.m.

NOTES: Ali Castiglie three goals on the day gives her 135 points in her Binghamton career. She is now just nine points away from the BU all-time record of 144 held by Lauren Wetherell.
