ALBANY, N.Y. - Visiting Binghamton (4-4-1, 1-1 America East) continued its mastery of longtime SUNY rival Albany with a 2-1 women's soccer win Thursday afternoon. The victory, BU's fourth in its last five games, gave the Bearcats a 17-1-1 all-time record against the Great Danes (5-6-1, 0-1-1 AE).
Each team struck quickly with Binghamton opening the scoring just 2:47 into the contest and Albany answering at the 4:12 mark. Sophomore defender Dani Raske took a pass from freshman forward Jamie Holliday and beat the Albany keeper on a breakaway for a 1-0 BU advantage. The Great Danes tied the score just 1:25 later on a 15-yard shot off a cross. But freshman forward Lisa Campbell netted her first collegiate goal at the 20:21 mark, banging in a rebound. That goal stood up as the winner as the teams played scoreless soccer for the remaining 69:39.
"We played a hard-fought game," head coach Sarah McClellan said. "It was a great team effort ... it's nice to get our first conference win. The girls are feeling fresh and working hard and it's paying off."
Senior keeper Jen McEachron and junior Erin Iman split the duties in goal with McEachron making three saves and allowing the goal and Iman lowering her goals against average to 1.06 with a scoreless second half.
The shots were 16-16.
The Bearcats returns home to host Stony Brook Sunday afternoon.
