Stony Brook, N.Y. -- Sophomore Victoria Cable tied a career-high with four goals to lead Stony Brook to a 16-10 victory over the Binghamton women's lacrosse team (3-10, 0-4 AE), while enduring driving rain at LaValle Stadium on Saturday afternoon.
The Seawolves claimed the first goal, and freshman Lis Zuern quickly answered at the 24:04 mark to tie the game at 1-1. After a goal by Cable, freshman Meg Brown would tie the score again off a dish from sophomore Lisa Illig.
However, the Bearcats would not score again till 3:13 to finally break a seven goal run by Stony Brook with a goal from sophomore Ali Castiglie. Zuern would add another goal as the half expired with a free-position shot to cut the Seawolves lead to 9-4 at the half.
Sophomore Beth Moore started off the second-half scoring, netting a free-position goal at 27:43 to close the Stony Brook gap to 9-5. The Seawolves would trade goals with the Bearcats until Binghamton would put together three-in-a-row, highlighted by two goals from freshman Emily Thon, to cut the lead to 12-10. However, Stony Brook would string together four goals to close out the game.
Binghamton out-shot Stony Brook 32-30, and edged out the Seawolves in draw controls by a 15-12 margin. However, the Bearcats only converted on three of ten free position attempts.
Junior Lizzie Wright, Zuern, Moore and Thon each scored two goals. Castiglie and Brown would each add a goal, while Illig tallied the Bearcats lone assist.
"Kelsey Pieper had an outstanding game in transition and also defensively Siobhan Menz stepped up and played very very well defensively, but unfortunately we did not play sixty minutes," commented head coach Tony Zostant. "We dug ourselves a hole in the first half and as a young team that is something we have to overcome."
Binghamton continues conference play when the Bearcats visit Boston University next Saturday, April 18 at noon.
