BU women's soccer surrenders late goal, falls to visiting Iona 1-0
Bearcats can't capitalize on 23-5 shots margin, suffer fourth shutout of season

Box Score

VESTAL, N.Y. -- Binghamton women's soccer (2-5) peppered Iona with 23 shots but the visiting Gaels (2-7) converted the last of their five shots to pull out a 1-0 win over BU Wednesday night from the Bearcats Sports Complex.

With 14:23 remaining in regulation, the Gaels worked the ball on the left flank and when a trio of BU defenders got caught up in a pile, Iona forward Ali Werner lofted a looping shot from 22 yards out that nestled just under the crossbar and above the outstretched hands of BU freshman keeper Carrie Martin.

"That's the sport of soccer," head coach Sarah McClellan said of the outcome. "We could've played better and we could've been sharper technically... but sometimes the lucky one goes in. We weren't able to finish."

Martin was called on to make just two saves with BU owning a 23-5 cushion.

Freshman defender Liz Cusato was named the America East Player of the Game.

Binghamton next plays at Big East member Seton Hall Monday night.
