Bearcats blanked by Boston University 4-0; will need help to gain tournament bid

Box score

BOSTON, Mass. - Binghamton (9-7-2, 3-4-2 America East) women's soccer surrendered four goals in the final 21 minutes and lost 4-0 at conference champion Boston University (11-5-4, 7-1-1 AE) Saturday afternoon. The Bearcats have now completed their regular-season, and must wait for a possible post-season bid.

The host Terriers, who outshot Binghamton 14-3, broke a scoreless tie in the 70th minute. Boston then added a second goal less than two minutes later, and tacked on two late goals in a 2:19 span.

"We played real well in the first half," head coach Jeff Leightman said. We had our chances. But we let down in the last 20 minutes."

Binghamton needs a loss by UMBC and a loss or tie by Stony Brook to gain the sixth and final berth to the America East Championship, which begins on Tuesday. UMBC hosts Northeastern and Stony Brook visits New Hampshire on Sunday.

If the Bearcats don't advance to the conference tournament, they should receive strong consideration for a berth to the ECAC Championship. Binghamton's winning season is the program's 17th consecutive.
