Binghamton women's lacrosse falls to No. 13 Syracuse 21-2

Box Score

SYRACUSE, N.Y.--Binghamton women's lacrosse (0-2) got a first-hand view of one of the nation's premier lacrosse programs Tuesday night, as they were defeated by No. 13 Syracuse, 21-2, in the Carrier Dome.

The host Orangewomen (3-1), who came into Tuesday's contest ranked 13th in the most recent IWLCA poll, jumped out to an early 2-0 lead before sophomore Leanne Musso (Auburn, N.Y.) put the Bearcats on the board with her fifth goal of the young season, an unassisted tally at the 21:15 mark.

That, however, was as close as the Bearcat women would get, as Syracuse orchestrated an impressive 14-1 half-ending run to give the Orangewomen a commanding 16-2 edge after 30 minutes of action.

Junior Danielle Edwards (Horseheads, N.Y.) netted Binghamton's only other tally, her second goal of the season. Senior Lauren Wetherell (Bethpage, N.Y.) also added an assist.

Facing a high powered Syracuse attack, the Bearcats were outshot 29-6 in the first half and 40-11 on the evening. The Orangewomen also held a commanding edge in draw controls, finishing with a 20-5 advantage.

Sophomore Sandra Alvarez (Port Washington, N.Y.) had 13 saves for the Bearcats.

Binghamton heads back to Syracuse to take on preseason MAAC favorite LeMoyne Saturday afternoon. Game time is set for noon.
