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

points (two goals, four assists) while both classmate Danielle
Edwards (Horseheads, N.Y.) and freshman Julia

N.Y.) continued her stellar sophomore campaign with her fifth
