BU women's soccer blanks Delaware State 1-0 in home opener
Freshman Kaitlyn Cook nets game's lone goal 5:17 into contest

Box Score

VESTAL, N.Y. -- Binghamton women's soccer (1-2) notched its first win of the season - a 1-0 shutout of visiting Delaware State (0-5) Friday night from the Bearcats Sports Complex.

The Bearcats racked up a 22-2 advantage in shots but relied on the right foot of freshman midfielder Kaitlyn Cook, who tallied the only goal 5:17 into the game. Sophomore forward Sarah Furminger broke loose down the right side and sent a cross into the box, where junior forward AnnMarie Rizzi touched it through to space and a rushing Cook one-timed a shot from 10 yards out firmly into the back of the net. It was Cook's second goal of the season.

Binghamton mounted a consistent attack and spent a great deal of the game deep inside the Hornet's defensive third but couldn't add to its lead.

“We're pleased with the result," head coach Sarah McClellan said. "We got lots of shots and developed our rhythm and our possession tonight."

Freshman keeper Carrie Martin was called on to make just one save in registering her first collegiate shutout.

Furminger was named the America East Player of the Game.

"Sarah had a great assist and really dominated the flank space and did a nice job for us," McClellan said.

Binghamton next hosts Delaware at 1 p.m. on Sunday.
