Women’s soccer outguns Colgate 4-3 in double overtime

Box Score

Hamilton, N.Y. — Junior forward Tracy Kasmarcik (Binghamton, N.Y.) scored with just two seconds remaining in the second overtime, giving Binghamton (6-2-1) a wild 4-3 victory over Colgate (3-5-2) Sunday afternoon. Kasmarcik, who scored twice and now has 11 points in her last two games, took a pass from sophomore linemate Tatiana Mathelier (Pomona, N.Y.), and struck a volley over the rushing keeper’s head.

“It was a very exciting game — great attacking soccer,” head coach Jeff Leightman said.

The game featured a flurry of goals — two by the Bearcats in the opening 6:21. Mathelier got things started just 1:48 into the contest, taking a feed from freshman defender Meghan Taylor (Campbell Hall, N.Y.) and notching her fifth goal of the season. Less than five minutes later, Kasmarcik scored an unassisted goal. Colgate got on the board barely over three minutes later, and tied it with a goal in the 22nd minute.

The teams traded goals in the second half with sophomore midfielder Emily Moore (Pearl River, N.Y.) collecting BU’s third of the game in the 58th minute off a pass from Kasmarcik. But six minutes later, the host Red Raiders netted the equalizer, setting the stage for Kasmarcik’s overtime dramatics.

The victory extends BU’s win streak to four heading into seven consecutive America East conference games. The Bearcats seem to hitting stride at the right time. After netting just one goal in a three-game early season winless streak, Binghamton has now struck for 17 goals in its last four games (4.2 per game).

“We’ve scored a lot of goals lately, and that will give us confidence going into conference play.”

Binghamton will host Albany in its America East debut Wednesday at 4 p.m.

Colgate outshot BU 27-22 ... Kasmarcik now has a team-best seven goals and 18 points ... Mathelier has five goals and 15 points ... Sunday’s game was BU’s fourth overtime game in nine games this season.
