Immediate Release: November 14, 2003
TEANECK, N.J. - Amid cold and windy conditions, second-seeded Binghamton women's soccer (9-8-2) and third-seeded Fairleigh Dickinson (9-8-1) combined for just 10 shots on goal, but the host Knights made the most of their four shots, emerging with a 1-0 win in an ECAC semifinal game Friday afternoon. The Knights now advance to Sunday's championship game against top-seeded Fordham.
FDU scored on a header with just 2:25 remaining in the first half for the game's lone tally. Binghamton had several chances in the waning minutes, but could not convert.
"It was tough to score today, especially given the weather conditions," head coach Jeff Leightman said. "I didn't think we played that badly, but a mistake in back cost us."
The Bearcats had defeated FDU, 1-0, in the regular season. Binghamton was making its fifth post-season appearance in the last seven years.
