Immediate Release: October 20, 2005
VESTAL, N.Y. - Junior forward Danielle White (Haddon Township, N.J.) scored the game's lone goal in the 68th minute and Binghamton (9-6-3, 5-2-1 America East) blanked Hartford (4-12-1, 2-4-1 AE) 1-0 in a women's soccer game Thursday afternoon from West Gym Field. The Bearcats will now prepare for the America East Championship, which begins next Friday in Boston. Binghamton is the defending conference champion, and is assured of no worse than a No. 4 seed in the six-team tournament.
"Obviously we're happy with the result," head coach Jeff Leightman said. "We didn't compete hard enough though, especially in the first half. I thought Hartford outworked us in the first half. We brought our full game in second half and created tons of scoring opportunitites. It was a good game."
White knocked in a header off a corner kick from senior midfielder Kelly Sanders (Ramsey, N.J.) at the 67:48 mark for her team-high eighth goal of the season. White has scored four goals in her last six games and now has four game-winning goals this season.
Binghamton outshot Hartford 22-8 for the game, including 14-2 in the second half.
Junior keeper Kristie Bowers (Rochester, N.Y.) made three saves for her eighth shutout of the season.
The America East Championship begins with quarterfinal games on October 28. The quarterfinals and semifinals (Oct. 30) will be hosted by Boston University, which has clinched the No. 1 seed.
