The Bearcats took the early led on a goal by sophomore Anna Riordan (Yorktown Heights, N.Y.) which was assisted senior attack Laura Gabbamonte (Glen Cove, N.Y.). UNH struck back with three goals.

"I am proud of the team, we did the things we had planned on doing," head coach Emily Edmonston said. "The second 15 minutes of the first half they kept cutting and we could not stop them. I talked with the team at halftime and we changed some things to stop them, after that we played much better."

UNH outshot Binghamton 40-15 for the game, the Wildcats won 18 of the 26 drawcontols.

The Bearcats will head to UMBC on Sunday for a 2 p.m. game.
