Binghamton women's lacrosse drops 12-8 decision to Quinnipiac
VESTAL, N.Y.-- Juniors Danielle Mormile and Jennifer Larson combined for nine goals to propel Quinnipiac (6-6) over Binghamton (2-8) in an non-conference women's lacrosse game on Tuesday afternoon. The loss was the third in a row for the Bearcats.
2:20 into the game sophomore attack Danielle Edwards (Horseheads, N.Y.) scored on an assist from sophomore midfielder Lauren Wetherell (Bethpage, N.Y.) to tie the game at 1-1. The Bobcats followed several mintues later by scoring three goals within two minutes. Freshman midfielder Leanne Musso (Auburn, N.Y.) scored an unassisted goal at the 11:05 mark. Quinnipiac answered back with a pair of goals. 17:43 into the first quarter Musso scored on an assist by Wetherell. Several minutes later Larson scored for the Bobcats. At the 27:28 mark Wetherell scored on assist from Musso. With 14 seconds left to play in the first half Quinnipiac scored the final goal of the half to hold the 8-4 lead.
By the 3:20 mark of the second half Quinnipiac managed to find the net twice, increasing its lead to six. The Bearcats rallied with goals by junior attack Allison Lak (Nassau, N.Y.), Edwards and senior attack Laura Gabbamonte (Glen Cove, N.Y.) cutting the Bobcat lead to three with 7:32 left to play. Mormile squashed all hopes of a Bearcat comeback with a pair of free position goals. With just over 1:30 to play Gabbamonte scored the final goal of the game.
"I think we picked it up in the second half and played with them, we just needed to do that in the first half," head coach Emily Edmonston said. "This has been a problem all season and as soon as we start playing consistent the outcome will become different than today."
Senior goalie Christa Quon (Vestal, N.Y.) made 10 saves.
Quinnipiac was 6-8 today on free position shots, while Binghamton was 1-5. The Bobcats had 38 shots, while Binghamton had 20. Quinnipiac had the slight advantage scooping 28 ground balls, while Binghamton collected 23.
The Bearcats will next head to St. Francis (Pa.) on Thursday at 4 p.m. who they defeated 19-3 last season.
