Stony Brook overpowers Binghamton women's lacrosse 21-7 in conference opener
Bearcats drop fifth straight outing to open up 2007

Box Score

Stony Brook, N.Y. --Stony Brook (7-1, 1-0 America East) cruised to a 21-7 victory over
Binghamton (0-5, 0-1 AE) in the conference opener for both teams on Saturday at the SBU Sports Complex.

Stony Brook ran off five unanswered goals in the contest's first 8:10 before freshman Kate Gromatsky (Smithtown, N.Y.) put the Bearcats on the board at the 18:22 mark on a feed from classmate Tracy Weinstein (East Islip, N.Y.).

After another Seawolves' tally brought the game to 6-1, BU netted a pair of goals in a span of just 12 seconds. Gromatsky struck again, converting a free position opportunity, and then junior Leanne Musso (Auburn, N.Y.) controlled the ensuing draw control and fed senior Danielle Edwards (Horseheads, N.Y.) who deposited her ninth goal of the season. Edwards finished with a pair of goals to extend her goal scoring streak to a team-best five games.

The Bearcats, however, would draw no closer as the hosts closed out the first half on a 6-1 run to take a commanding 12-4 advantage into the break. Stony Brook stretched the lead to as many as 14 in the second half, outscoring BU 9-3 to set the final margin.

"We need to stay consistent," said third-year head coach Emily Edmonston. "Once they made their run, we got kind of down and were never really able to recover."

Gromatsky, Edwards and sophomore Julia Demuth (Jordan, N.Y.) all finished with two points to lead the Bearcat attack. Sophomore Kara Slowik (Warners, N.Y.) delivered a strong defensive effort collecting a team-high five ground balls.

Junior Sandra Alvarez (Port Washington, N.Y) got the nod between the pipes for the Bearcats, turning away 20 Stony Brook attempts in a losing effort.

Binghamton returns to action on Tuesday, March 27 on the road against Marist at 4 p.m.
