Late goal lifts visiting Harvard past Binghamton 1-0 in women's soccer
Crimson convert off corner kick for 1-0 win; Bearcats' suffer first loss of season

Box Score

VESTAL, N.Y. - Harvard freshman Erin Wylie headed in the game-winning goal with 9:51 remaining in regulation to lead the visiting Crimson (1-0) to a 1-0 victory over Binghamton (2-1-1) in a women's soccer game Saturday afternoon from West Gym Field.

Wylie redirected a corner kick from classmate Rachael Lau into the far right corner for the game's lone goal.

The Crimson outshot BU 16-4 and held a 5-1 margin in corner kicks. Binghamton, which shut out its first three opponents of the season, has managed just two goals in 388 minutes of soccer this fall.

"It dissapointing to lose but Harvard is a good team," head coach Jeff Leightman said. "It was a matchup of two regionally-ranked teams and it was some good soccer. I thought our defense was well organized and we had some positives. But obviously our attack isn't where it needs to be. I think we're still moving forward but we have a lot of work to do, especially on the attack. That's always going to be the final piece."

Junior keeper Kristie Bowers (Rochester, N.Y.) extended her regular-season scoreless minutes streak to 525:14 before allowing the goal. Bowers had last collected a ball from the net back on October 28, 2004 against Boston University. The regular-season streak spanned six games.
