Stony Brook rallies from early deficit, edges Bearcats 12-10
VESTAL, N.Y.--Visting Stony Brook (6-8, 2-3 America East) scored back-to-back goals in a span of 37 seconds midway through the second half to take the lead for good, and held off Binghamton (4-10, 1-4 AE) in an America East matchup on Friday afternoon at the East Gym Complex. The Bearcats led 6-2 midway through the opening frame before the Seawolves rallied for the win, which knocked Binghamton out of contention for next week's America East Championship.
Stony Brook led 2-1 early on before Binghamton scored five unanswered goals in just over six minutes to build a 6-2 lead. Freshman midfielder Lauren Chemotti (Skaneateles, N.Y.) started the run with a goal at the 11:02 mark and freshman attack Heather Grose (Yorktown Heights, N.Y./Yorktown) added another tally just over two minutes later. Junior attack Laura Gabbamonte (Glen Cove, N.Y.) then scored on a free position shot and an unassisted goal just over a minute apart, and freshman attack Becky Green (Altamont, N.Y./Guilderland) capped the run with the first of her two goals.
The Seawolves responded with three straight goals at the end of the first half, and added two more to start the second stanza and take a 7-6 lead. Gabbamonte's third goal of the game at the 10:28 mark knotted the score at 7-7, but Stony Brook's Amy Taylor and Danielle Werner scored at the 11:36 and 12:13 marks, respectively, pushing the Seawolves in front for good. The Bearcats closed the gap to 9-8 on a score by freshman attack Anna Riordan (Yorktown Heights, N.Y./Yorktown), but Stony Brook scored twice more to extend the lead to 11-8.
Gabbamonte had a career-high four goals to lead Binghamton, while Green and sophomore center Lauren Wetherell (Bethpage, N.Y.) each collected two goals and two assists. Senior goalie Christa Quon (Vestal, N.Y.) had 15 saves in goal, with nine of those coming in the second half.
Carlee Buck had three goals and three assists for Stony Brook, which also got three goals and an assist from Danielle Werner. Amy Taylor and Andrea Venditti each scored twice for the Seawolves.
Binghamton concludes its season at home on Sunday at noon with a matchup against defending champion Boston University. The Terriers enter the game with a 7-9 overall record, but are 4-1 in conference play and sit in second place in the standings.
