BU women's soccer tripped up by Delaware in overtime 1-0
Visiting Blue Hens score game-winner 7:29 into first extra period

Box Score

VESTAL, N.Y. -- Visiting Delaware (3-1) struck 7:29 into the first overtime to seize a 1-0 win over Binghamton women's soccer (1-3) Sunday afternoon from the Bearcats Sports Complex.

Freshman forward Shannon Kearney raced in after a through ball was sent behind the BU defense and she beat Bearcats keeper Carrie Martin to the ball just inside the box on the left. Kearney then nudged the ball into the open net from 16 yards to end the game.

The Bearcats held a 9-8 shots advantage and played a complete game up and down the field.

“We're moving in the right direction," head coach Sarah McClellan said. "We battled for the entire game today but I thought we got a little unlucky on the result end. We played a great game against a good opponent and I felt we outplayed our opponent for much of the game ... but fell short."

Martin made six saves, including a sparkling stop on a partial breakaway midway through the first half.

Junior defender Keri Iheagwara was named the America East Player of the Game.

"Keri was a defensive stalwart in the back for us - a wall back there," McClellan said. "She did a great job."

Binghamton next plays Wednesday night at Bucknell.
