VESTAL, N.Y. -- Senior Michaela Hardy scored four goals and added an assist to lead New Hampshire over the Binghamton women's lacrosse team (3-13, 0-6 AE) 21-9 on a beautiful Saturday afternoon at the Bearcat Sports Complex. This was the final game for the Bearcats this season.
The Wildcats broke into the scoring column first, but sophomore Kate Tesi dead-locked the game again with a goal at the 24:51 mark. New Hampshire broke the tie for a second time, only to have freshman Meg Brown score 15 seconds later to tie the game again.
The Wildcats strung three together to jump out to a 5-2 lead, before junior Lizzie Wright ended the run with 17:46 to go in the first half. New Hampshire would try to pull away with two quick goals, but the Bearcats answered with two of their own from Tesi and freshman Emily Thon to keep the score close at 7-5. However, the Wildcats would end the half on a 5-1 run, with freshman Lis Zuern scoring the Bearcats only goal, to take a commanding 12-6 lead into the half.
The second half was all Wildcats, as they scored eight straight goals, the last one coming at the 18:11 mark to take a 20-6 lead. Binghamton would string together three in a row from Brown, and freshman Riley Newman and Melissa Jaworski, but it was not enough to cut into the New Hampshire lead.
Sophomore Ali Castiglie added two assists for the Bearcats.
"First half I thought we came out to play, the head was definitely a factor but both teams had to play in the heat. " head coach Tony Zostant commented after the game. "Kate Tesi had a good game overall. We did a good job on draw controls and we played to the end."
