Women's lacrosse defeats St. Francis (Pa.) 19-3
VESTAL, N.Y.--Freshman attack Becky Green (Altamont, N.Y./Guilderland) netted a game-high four goals and dished out three assists, leading Binghamton (4-7) to a record-setting 19-3 win over St. Francis of Pennsylvania (0-10) in a non-conference women's lacrosse game on Tuesday afternoon at the East Gym Complex. The 19 goals is a school record, eclipsing the 16 goals scored against Siena on March 21 of this season. The 16 goals difference also represents the largest margin of victory in school history.
"A game like this is a good way to see how far we have come and where we can get to in the future," head coach Sue Frost said. "We didn't play as strong as we could but this is a team that we were competitive with the last time we played them, and today we were no longer competitive with them."
The Bearcats scored eight unanswered goals in the final 16:13 of the first half to take a 12-2 lead at the half. With the clock running throughout the second half, Binghamton still managed to go on a 7-1 spurt to end the game.
"We have a good number of people that can put the ball in the net," Frost said. "Other teams cannot block down on one or two people because someone else can pick it up and score. It's hard to double up and shut us down because there are always five or six players who are ready to put the ball in the net."
Sophomore center Lauren Wetherell (Bethpage, N.Y.) and freshman attack Heather Grose (Yorktown Heights, N.Y./Yorktown) each added three goals. Freshman midfielder Anna Riordan (Yorktown Heights) netted two goals and seven different Bearcats each had one goal. Grosse also recorded three assists.
Senior goalie Christa Quon (Vestal, N.Y.) and sophomore goalie Chelsea Winslow (Auburn, N.Y.) combined to make three saves.
The Bearcats travel to New Hampshire on Friday for a 3:30 p.m. game.
