BALTIMORE, Md. -- Senior Abbey Swift scored five goals, including three in the first half to help push UMBC past the Binghamton women's lacrosse team 16-4, on Wednesday afternoon at UMBC Stadium.
Swift scored two of the first three goals of the game as the Retrievers jumped out to a 3-0 lead just under five minutes into the game. Freshman Riley Newman broke open the scoring column for Binghamton at the 23:01 mark to cut the lead to 3-1. UMBC would score a quick two goals before junior Lizzie Wright would score off a dish from sophomore Ali Castiglie with 16:17 in the first half. The Retrievers would end the half with a four goal run to carry a 9-2 lead into halftime.
The Bearcats scored the first goal of the second half as freshman Lis Zuern would find the back of the net just 1:29 off the clock. Binghamton's only other goal of the half came from a free position shot by sophomore Kaitlyn Concialdi at the 11:52 mark
"We played a very good UMBC team, when we're in conference we need to come ready to play for sixty minutes when we play a conference opponent," commented head coach Tony Zostant. "The outstanding player of our game was Kelsey Pieper who played an outstanding defensive game and I look forward to seeing more of that in the future."
Binghamton was out shot 29-20 in the game, and converted only 1-9 free position shots.
Binghamton faces another conference opponent this Saturday when the Bearcats host Albany at the BU Sports Complex at 7 p.m.
