Women's lacrosse drops 12-6 decision against visiting Quinnipiac

Box score

Vestal, N.Y.--Senior Danielle Mormile scored a game-high five points to lead the visiting Bobcats to a 12-6 victory over Binghamton in a non-conference matchup on Tuesday afternoon at the East Gym Complex. The loss is the Bearcats (4-12, 0-5 AE) fifth straight.

On the strength of three Mormile tallies, Quinnipiac (9-6, 6-2 NEC) jumped out to an early 7-1 advantage after 18 minutes of action. On the afternoon, the Bobcats' scoring leader finished with four goals and an assist.

Despite being faced with an early six-goal deficit, Binghamton would answer, as the Bearcats stemmed the early surge with three consecutive scores, a pair from senior midfielder Lauren Wetherell (Bethpage, N.Y.) and one off the stick of freshman Julia Demuth (Jordan, N.Y.).

With their lead now dwindling at 7-4 and the contest's momentum ripe for the taking, it was the Bobcats who responded, touching the net twice in a 20 second span to stake a 9-4 edge headed into the break.

Played amidst a steady rain, the second half saw both teams net a pair of scores before Mormile punctuated her stellar afternoon, converting on a free position attempt for her fourth and final score at the 17:53 mark to create the contest's final margin.

"I thought the heart and hustle was there today," head coach Emily Edmonston said. "We didn't finish some of the plays that we should have but the effort was definitely there."

For Binghamton, juniors Danielle Edwards (Horseheads, N.Y.), Heather Grose (Yorktown Heights, N.Y.) and Anna Riordan (Yorktown Heights, N.Y. ) each recorded a goal while sophomore Leanne Musso (Auburn, N.Y.) finished with a game-high three assists.

Bearcat netminder freshman Carolyn Cuneo (East Northport, N.Y.) made her first start of the season and finished with eight saves to her credit.

Quinnipiac outshot the Bearcats by a 32-21 margin and produced 44 ground balls.

Binghamton returns to action on Saturday afternoon, when they host conference foe UMBC in the 2006 season finale. Game time is set for 4 p.m.
