|Binghamton defeats Albany 7-0 in America East opener|
Also coming through for Binghamton against the Great Danes were sophomore midfielder Caitlin OShaughnessy (Stony Point, N.Y./ North Rockland) and senior midfielder Rosey Mustafa (Montebello, N.Y./ Suffern), each of whom scored two goals. Senior midfielder Amanda Norman (Middletown, N.Y.) tallied three assists.
Were very pleased to open up our conference schedule with a win like this, said head coach Jeff Leightman. Weve been waiting a long time to compete in the America East and this was a great way to get started.
Binghamton jumped out to a 3-0 halftime advantage, outshooting Albany 17-0. OShaughnessy, Kasmarcik and Mustafa each netted a goal. Mustafas score came as time expired in the half.
In the second half, the Bearcats kept up the tempo, scoring four more times while outshooting the Great Danes 14-2. Kasmarcik wasted little time in getting the hat trick, scoring at 50:26 and 59:23 to extend the lead to 5-0. OShaughnessy and Mustafa finished up the scoring at 73:50 and 83:42 respectively.
For Kasmarcik, the three goals ties her career high and marks the second time in the past three games that she has recorded a hat trick. The reigning America East Conference Player of the Week now has eight goals in the past three games and a team-high 10 for the season.
Tracy has really improved the past several games, Leightman said. Her scoring this many goals is not by accident. She is proving that her being named all-region last year was not a fluke.
Mustafas two goals ties her career high, which she set against Fairleigh Dickinson on Nov. 4, 2000. She now has four goals for the season.
OShaughnessy two goals marks her career high. They were also her first goals of the season. In the past two games, OShaughnessy has two goals and an assist.
Binghamton heads to Maine on Sunday for a noon game against the Black Bears.
