Immediate Release: October 11, 2009
VESTAL, N.Y. - Freshman midfielder Emily Pape extended her scoring streak to three games and her second-straight game-winner propelled visiting Binghamton (6-5-1, 3-2 America East) past Maine (4-5-2, 1-2-1 AE) 1-0 Sunday afternoon. The win was BU's sixth in its last eight games.
Pape took a feed from classmate Jamie Holliday in the 30th minute and maneuvered around the rushing Maine keeper before tapping it into the empty net. It was the third straight game in which Pape has scored. Holliday's assist was her second and gave her a team-best eight points on the season.
The Bearcats preserved the shutout with solid play between the posts. Senior Jen McEachron and junior Erin Iman split the game in half and shared the team's second straight shutout and fifth of the season. Iman made seven saves in the second half after McEachron (0.83 GAA) posted three saves in the first 45 minutes.
"Both of our goalkeepers did a great job," head coach Sarah McClellan said. "I was happy with our overall team effort. Our players worked together and battled for 90 minutes."
Maine owned a 25-5 shots advantage.
Binghamton breaks from its America East schedule to play at Ivy League member Penn Wednesday night.
