BU women's soccer edged by Hartford 1-0
Host Hawks tally game-winner in 70th minute

Box Score

WEST HARTFORD, Conn. -- Hartford's Breeana Robinson beat two defenders and scored the game's lone goal in the 70th minute to lift the Hawks (4-6-2, 1-0-1 AE) to a 1-0 win over visiting Binghamton women's soccer (3-8, 1-1 AE) in an America East game Thursday night from Al-Marzook Field.

Hartford held a 9-6 shots advantage but BU freshman keeper Carrie Martin was called on to make only one save.

"We battled well enough to create chances but just didn't do the extra to finish them," head coach Sarah McClellan said. "We lost focus for a moment on defense for their goal. When we improve that focus defensively and in front of the box to finish offensively, we'll be fine."

The Bearcats registered five shots in the first half but only one over the final 45 minutes. The team's offense has been held to two goals in its last six games.

Robinson and BU sophomore defender Alyssa Staubitz were named America East Players of the Game.

"Alyssa shut down the player she was marking pretty well," McClellan said. "This was her second straight strong game in back."

Binghamton next plays at Vermont Sunday afternoon.
