BU women's soccer edges Hartford 1-0 on Pape goal
Bearcats have now won five of last seven games

Box Score

VESTAL, N.Y. - Freshman midfielder Emily Pape scored her second goal in as many games to give Binghamton (5-5-1, 2-2 America East) a 1-0 win over visiting Hartford (4-7-2, 0-2-1 AE) Thursday night from the Bearcats Sports Complex. The Bearcats have now won five of their last seven games and have evened their conference mark.

"We are very excited about the tactical execution that the team as a whole showed tonight," head coach Sarah McClellan said. "We were able to get numbers forward and our attack had a nice rhythm to it. We've been working on that all year and are looking to build on what we did tonight."

Pape produced the game's lone goal at the 27:29 mark, taking a throw-in from junior back Stefani Knopick on the left side and letting loose a 22-yard blast that beat the Hartford keeper high to the far post.

The Bearcats controlled much of the game and built a 17-7 command in shots, but couldn't breathe a sigh of relief until a dangerous Hawks free kick was saved by junior Erin Iman in the closing seconds of the game.

Iman and senior Jen McEachron shared the shutout - their fourth of the season. McEachron didn't have to record a save in the first half and Iman notched two saves in the second half.

Binghamton travels to Maine for a Sunday afternoon tilt.

Pape was selected as BU's America East Player of the Game - her second honor of the season... the win was Binghamton's first over Hartford since the 2005 season (0-3-1).
