Binghamton women's lacrosse drops 16-8 decision at Long Island

Box Score

BROOKLYN, N.Y.-- Junior Amy Rizzo and senior Chrissie Carleton combined to score eight of Long Island's nine first half tallies to lead the host Blackbirds (1-4) to a 16-8 victory over Binghamton (2-5) in a non-conference game played Tuesday afternoon at LIU field.

Long Island held a 5-3 advantage midway through the first half when the Blackbirds' attacking duo led a late 4-0 surge giving their squad a 9-3 advantage after 30 minutes of action. Overall, Rizzo led all scorers with a game-high six goals and seven total points while Carelton added four tallies and a pair of assists.

The Blackbirds frustrated Binghamton on the offensive end throughout the decisive first frame, outshooting the Bearcats by a healthy 20-9 margin. Binghamton's play picked up in the final stanza, but ultimately, the six-goal halftime deficit would prove too much to overcome.

For the Bearcats. junior attacker Heather Grose (Yorktown Heights, N.Y.) led the way with six total points (two goals, four assists) while both classmate Danielle Edwards (Horseheads, N.Y.) and freshman Julia Demuth (Jordan, N.Y.) chipped in with a pair of finishes.

Sophomore Kristen Marsjanik (Webster, N.Y.) continued her stellar sophomore campaign with her fifth goal in as many games. Junior Anna Riordan (Yorktown Heights, N.Y.) rounded out the scoring for the Bearcats, with her sixth score of the season.

In between the pipes, sophomore goalie Sandra Alvarez (Port Washinton, N.Y.) made 10 saves for Binghamton.

After playing their first seven games on the road, Coach Edmonston and the Bearcat women return to Binghamton for their home opener against Siena on Thursday afternoon at 4 p.m.

Notes: Binghamton is now 0-2 all-time against LIU... Senior Lauren Wetherell has now collected a total of 14 ground balls in her last two contests
