Women's Lacrosse notches first win of 2007, tops Niagara 14-10
VESTAL, N.Y. -- Senior attack Heather Grose
(Yorktown Heights, N.Y.) had a team high three goals and added
an assist, leading Binghamton (1-7) to a 14-10 win over Niagara
(1-6) in a non-conference women's lacrosse game on Tuesday at
the East Gym Field. The 14 goals represents the Bearcats' highest
offensive output in a game this season.
Binghamton also got a pair of goals from senior attack Danielle
Edwards (Horseheads, N.Y.), sophomore midfielder Kelsey
Pieper (Rensselar, N.Y.), senior midfielder Anna
Riordan (Yorktown Heights, N.Y.) and sophomore midfielder
Demuth (Jordan, N.Y.). Niagara was led by sophomore attack
Vanessa Schultz, who tied for the game high with three goals.
With the game tied 1-1 midway
through the first half, the Bearcat offense got on track with
six goals in the ensuing 15 minutes. Riordan and Demuth each
scored both of their goals during that span. Dumuth's goal with
just six seconds left before halftime made the 7-3.
Grose took control early in the second half, scoring three of
Binghamton's first four goals which stretched the lead to 11-4
with 26:28 remaining in regulation. Edwards, meanwhile, got both
of her goals within a span of 2:46 as the lead grew to 14-7 with
8:55 left to go.
Niagara scored three unanswered goals in the final 7:39 of the
game but the Bearcats already had the cushion they needed to
secure their first win of the season.
The Purple Eagles outshot Binghamton 30-24 but junior goalie
Sandra Alvarez (Port Washington, N.Y.)
recorded 13 saves.
Binghamton heads to UMBC on Saturday for a 1 p.m. game.
