BU women's soccer edged by Seton Hall 1-0
Pirates tally game-winner on header in 35th minute

Box Score

SOUTH ORANGE, N.J. -- Host Seton Hall scored the game's only goal in the 35th minute and the Pirates (5-3) blanked Binghamton women's soccer (2-6) 1-0 Monday night from Owen T. Carroll Field.

Meghan Hayes headed in a cross 34:51 into the contest and Seton Hall built a 27-7 advantage in shots to keep the Bearcats at bay. The Pirates were coming off a 1-0 upset of No. 24 Rutgers in their last outing.

Freshman keeper Carrie Martin made six saves for Binghamton.

"We played a pretty good first half," head coach Sarah McClellan said. "We kept it fairly even and only gave up the goal off a mix-up the box. Other than that, we didn't give them very many opportunitites and I was encouraged to play pretty even against such a strong team. But we aren't a 90-minute team yet and we're going through some growing pains. We have to continue to work hard every day to have that competitiveness throughout the entire game. We're looking forward to putting it all together for conference play."

Sophomore forward Jamie Holliday was named the America East Player of the Game.

"Jamie worked very hard up top," McClellan said. "She was our most dangerous player on the attack tonight."

Binghamton hosts Cornell Wednesday night in the team's final tuneup before America East play begins this weekend. Kick-off Wednesday is at 7 p.m. from the Bearcats Sports Complex.
