Marist women's lacrosse tops Binghamton 21-5

Box Score

KINGSTON, N.Y. -- The Marist women's lacrosse team earned its third victory of the season with a 21-5 victory over Binghamton on Tuesday afternoon at Dietz Stadium.

The Bearcats (0-6) jumped out to a 2-0 lead on goals from senior Heather Grose (Yorktown Heights, N.Y.) and junior Leanne Musso (Auburn, N.Y.) and held the hosts scoreless for the contest's first 10 minutes.

Marist responded in emphatic fashion, running off nine unanswered goals to close out the half and 11 straight overall to put the game out of reach. The Red Foxes poured it on in the final 30 minutes of action, outscoring the Bearcats by a 12-3 margin.

Sophomore Carolyn Sumcizk led four MU players to score at least three goals with a game-high six points on four goals and a pair of assists en route to posting the school's second-highest single-game scoring output in program history.

Junior Anna Riordan (Yorktown Heights, N.Y.) was the only Bearcat to post a multi-point effort, finishing with a goal and two assists.

Despite the result, sophomore Kara Slowik (Warners, N.Y.) was again a steady contributor on BU's backline, tying game-highs with five ground balls and five caused turnovers. Sophomore C.J. Cuneo (East Northport, N.Y) made her first start of the spring between the pipes for the Bearcats, turning away 16 attempts in a losing effort.

Binghamton hosts I-88 rival Albany in its home opener at Alumni Stadium on Saturday, March 31 at 3 p.m.
