Women's lacrosse falls 22-5 to New Hampshire in 2007 finale
VESTAL, N.Y.-- Sophomore Sara Von Bargen recorded a game-high six points and senior Alexa Webster added a game-high five goals to lead visiting New Hampshire (7-9, 3-3 America East) to a 22-5 victory over Binghamton (1-14, 0-6 AE) in the regular season finale for both teams on Saturday afternoon at the East Gym Complex. Von Bargen finished with three goals and three assists to lead 10 different Wildcats players to find the scoresheet on the afternoon.
The Wildcats jumped out to an early 3-0 advantage powered by three quick scores in the contest's first 4:23. Senior Heather Grose (Yorktown Heights, N.Y.), one of five Bearcats playing in their final collegiate game, answered for BU, netting her 18th goal of the season off a feed from junior teammate Leanne Musso (Auburn, N.Y.) at the 22:06 mark. Grose would return the favor just 56 seconds later, finding Musso on the right flank for her first of two goals on the afternoon to cut the deficit to 3-2.
New Hampshire responded stemming the Bearcat run with five unanswered scores as part of a 9-1 half-ending run to grab a 12-3 lead after 30 minutes of action.
Leanne Musso and sophomore Julia Demuth (Jordan, N.Y.) both added second-half tallies as New Hampshire continued to dominate, stretching its lead to as many as 18 goals before settling on the final 22-5 margin. Musso finished with two goals and an assist to lead BU with three points.
Grose concluded her four-year Bearcat career with a two-point effort. Her first-half goal was the 84th of her career, which heads the Bearcats' all-time goal scoring list. She also ranks second all-time with 114 total points.
Sophomore C.J. Cuneo (East Northport, N.Y.) and junior Sandra Alvarez (Port Washington, N.Y.) split time between the pipes for Binghamton. Cuneo made the start and turned away eight shots in a losing effort, while Alvarez manned the net in the second half and finished with seven saves.
