Immediate Release: October 8, 2005
BOSTON, Mass. - Host Boston University (8-4-3, 4-0-1 America East) tallied the game's lone goal in the 30th minute to defeat Binghamton (7-6-2, 3-2 America East) amidst a downpour in a women's soccer conference game Saturday afternoon from Nickerson Field.
"We played a terrible first half but came on a bit in the second half," head coach Jeff Leightman said. "Boston moved the ball well ... they are an excellent team. We didn't quite perform as well as we can."
Boston held a 12-9 edge in shots and scored the game-winner on a rebound header from close range at the 29:53 mark. A Terriers free kick banked off the crossbar and dropped in front of the goal, where freshman Marisha Schumacher-Hodge headed it past junior keeper Kristie Bowers (Rochester, N.Y.).
Bowers recorded four saves for the Bearcats.
Binghamton returns home to host UMBC in a conference tilt on October 13 from West Gym Field.
