Immediate Release: February 20, 2011
LOUISVILLE, KY. -- The Binghamton women's lacrosse program opened up it's 2011 campaign falling to host Louisville 18-4, from the U of L Lacrosse Stadium. The Bearcats dropped their second straight season opener to Louisville, losing last year 19-8 at home. BU has never won a season opener going 0-10 since the program started in 2002.
Binghamton was overpowered by the Cardinals in the second half, being outscored 7-0, with the Bearcats final goal coming with 3:07 left in the first half. Louisville outshot BU 41-20 producing 18 goals on a cloudy, 43 degree day in Kentucky. Louisville, a team that scored no fewer than 10 goals last year, boasts the nation's leading goal scorer from 2010, Bergan Foley, whom netted five goals on the Bearcats.
Right from the start the Cardinals jumped on BU scoring just eight seconds into the game to take the 1-0 advantage. Back-to-back goals by junior attack Lis Zuern gave Binghamton the brief lead as Louisville would go on to score six unanswered goals, regaining the lead, 7-2. The Cardinals never looked back from there, outscoring BU 11-2 the rest of the way.
Zuern, the Bearcats lone bright spot, put two more goals in the back of the net during the first half, giving her four on the day and the only BU player to score a point (two goals were unassisted, two were free position). The four goals in the game were a career-high for Zuern.
Up next for the Bearcats is a road trip to Storrs, Connecticut to take on the University of Connecticut on Friday, Feb. 25. Face-off is set for 3 p.m.
