Binghamton women's lacrosse falls 21-7 on the road at Vermont
Burlington, Vt.--Junior Becky Kenison and freshman Kristen Millar
both recorded a game-high eight points to lead the host Catamounts
to a 21-7 victory over Binghamton in an America East conference
matchup on Saturday afternoon at Moulton Windor Field. With the
victory, Vermont brings its recent seven game losing skid to
a halt (6-8, 1-4 AE) and hands the Bearcats (4-11, 0-5 AE) their
fourth consecutive defeat.
Junior attack Heather Grose (Yorktown
Heights, N.Y.) gave Binghamton an early 1-0 advantage, touching
the net on an unassisted effort just 1:06 into the contest. Vermont,
however, would respond emphatically with a 5-0 surge spearheaded
by three of Kenison's team-best seven tallies.
Binghamton stemmed the run with a goal from sophomore midfielder
Leanne Musso (Auburn, N.Y.) at the 18:00
mark, but once again the Catamounts answered, as this time Millar
struck, registering a goal and an assist on back-to-back Vermont
scores to stretch the lead to 7-2 with 14:03 to play in the half.
On the afternoon, the Catamount freshman finished with four goals
and four assists.

Edwards (Horseheads, N.Y.), Julia Demuth
(Jordan, N.Y.) and Lauren Chemotti (Skaneateles,
N.Y.) before halftime to cut the deficit by one, as the Bearcats
trailed by a 9-5 margin after 30 minutes of action.
The second half of play saw Vermont strike early and often, as
the Catamounts used an early 4-0 run to capture the contest's
momentum and put the game out of reach.
Senior Lauren Wetherell (Bethpage,
N.Y.) netted a pair of back-to-back second half goals to wrap
up the scoring for the Bearcats. Wetherell also add her team-leading
netminder Sandra Alvarez (Port Washington,
N.Y.) stopped 10 Vermont efforts before giving way to freshman
Carolyn Cuneo (East Northport, N.Y.),
who manned the crease for the final 14:42 and finished with two
saves to her credit.

is set for 2 p.m.

streak snapped last week against UNH, Julia Demuth got back on
the scoresheet with her 15th goal of the season. She has now
scored in nine of the last 10.
