Immediate Release: October 8, 2006
VESTAL, N.Y. - Freshman midfielder Emily Pallotta (Andover, Mass.) notched an unassisted goal in the 78th minute to lead 12th-ranked Boston University (11-2-2, 4-0-1 AE) to a 1-0 win over host Binghamton (5-7-2, 2-3 AE) in an America East Conference women's soccer game Sunday afternoon at West Gym Field. The defending conference champion Terriers extended their unbeaten streak to seven games and in the process, snapped Binghamton's home unbeaten string at nine games.
Following a scoreless first half in which Boston was held to just two shots on goal, the Terriers registered seven of the eight shots in the second half. Pallotta netted the game-winner when she recovered a loose ball near the goal mouth and drilled it to the left upper corner of the net.
"I was really proud of our effort today," head coach Jeff Leightman said. "It was a great game that could've gone either way. I felt we dictated play in the first half and did a wonderful job of creating chances and limiting their chances. Boston then took control of the game in the second half and we ran out of gas a bit. They showed the depth of a highly-ranked team in that final 45 minutes but we gave them all they could handle for a while. We keep playing better every game and hopefully we can continue that pattern."
senior goal keeper Kristie Bowers (Rochester,
N.Y.) made four saves while her Boston counterpart, Stephanie
Dreyer (New Rochelle, N.Y.), registered two saves for the solo
shutout. Dreyer is currently ranked 10th
Boston outshot Binghamton 9-6.
The Bearcats next play at UMBC on Thursday.
