Box Score

LEWISBURG, Pa. -- Sophomore forward Sarah Furminger scored twice to lead Binghamton women's soccer (2-3) to a decisive 3-0 win over host Bucknell (1-5) Wednesday night from Emmitt Field.

Furminger sparked a dominant first half for the Bearcats, who peppered Bucknell's defense to the tune of 15 shots and two goals in the opening 45 minutes. She opened the scoring in the 20th minute, striking a 35-yard blast to the top left corner for her first tally as a Bearcat.

In the 37th minute, sophomore forward Jamie Holliday made it 2-0 with her first goal of the season. Holliday took a pass from junior midfielder Mary DeWitte and ripped a shot off the far post and in.

In the second half, Furminger struck again, taking a feed from junior forward AnnMarie Rizzi in the 51st minute and converting from 12 yards out on the right.

Binghamton outshot Bucknell 25-11 for the game.

“It was a great team effort tonight against a good opponent," head coach Sarah McClellan said. "It was well orchestratred with good communication, organization and solid defending and then we finished some of our chances on the offensive end. We were also able to play a lot of players, which was nice. We are looking forward to building off this performance as conference play draws closer."

Freshmen keepers Carrie Martin and Stephanie Speirs shared the shutout with Martin going the first 82 minutes and making three saves before giving way to Speirs, who stopped two shots in her collegiate debut.

Furminger, who leads the team with two goals and six points (2-2=6) early in the season, was named the America East Player of the Game.

Binghamton next travels to Syracuse for a Sunday afternoon tilt against the Orange.
