Women's soccer team blanks Fairleigh Dickinson 1-0

Junior midfielder Caitlin O'Shaughnessy (Stony Point, N.Y./ North Rockland) netted her second goal of the season, leading Binghamton (5-2) to a 1-0 win over Fairleigh Dickinson (2-3) in women's soccer action on Wednesday in Teaneck, N.J. With the win, the Bearcats record their fourth solo shutout of the season.

Despite being outshot 9-6, O'Shaughnessy converted on the key play of the game when she fired a shot off the crossbar at the 11:55 mark. Freshman forward Kelly Burnham (Endicott, N.Y./ Union-Endicott) was credited with the assist.

"I don't think we played like we were capable," head coach Jeff Leightman said. "Fairleigh Dickinson outworked us. Still, it's good coming away with a win on the road.

Freshman goalkeeper Kristie Bowers (Rochester, N.Y./ Greece Olympia) recorded her fourth shutout of the season, making six saves in the process.

Up next, the Bearcats head to Hartford on Sunday for their first America East Conference game at 2 p.m.
