Binghamton women's soccer edges Hartford on road, 2-1

Box Score

WEST HARTFORD, Conn.--Senior forward Tatiana Mathelier (Pomona, N.Y.) scored twice in a span of 1:36 early in the second half and visiting Binghamton (10-4-1, 4-2 America East) overcame a 1-0 halftime deficit to post a 2-1 victory over Hartford (3-10-2, 2-4-1 AE) in an America East women's soccer game Friday night.

Mathelier dribbled through the Hawks defense and deposited her sixth goal of the season at the 50:44 mark, knotting the game at 1-1. Then shortly after the ensuing kickoff, senior midfielder Deli Plourde (Clifton Park, N.Y.) gained control and fed Mathelier, who beat the keeper to the upper right corner for her fifth career game-winner. The assist was Plourde's fifth of the season.

Binghamton outshot Hartford 7-2 in the decisive second half and 13-9 for the game.

"I thought we played very well in the second half," head coach Jeff Leightman said. "We combined a lot better and played as a team instead of individually. We'll take the three points because we needed them. If we get three more points on Sunday (at Vermont) we should guarantee a spot in the conference tournament. It was a positive performance, especially since we were missing three starters."

Sophomore Kristy Doerner (Shoreham, N.Y.) made two saves in her first start of the season. Doerner started in place of classmate Kristie Bowers, who injured her ankle prior to the game. Binghamton also was without leading scorer Kim Povill.

The Bearcats next head to Burlington for a Sunday matchup with Vermont.

The win was Binghamton's 10th of the season, eclipsing the win total of each of the last two seasons (9) ... The win also assures the Bearcats of posting a winning season for the 18th consecutive year.
