BU women's soccer battles to 1-1 tie against Stony Brook

Box score

VESTAL, N.Y. --Binghamton (2-9-3, 1-3-1, AE) held first-place Stony Brook in check through regulation and two overtimes and earned a 1-1 draw with the visiting Seawolves (7-2-5, 4-0-2 AE) Thursday night at the Bearcats Sports Complex.

"I'm very proud of how we played tonight," head coach Jeff Leightman said. "We played hard for 110 minutes and our team was full of energy. It was a great, great team effort."

Junior forward Charlotte Foster (Rochester, N.Y.) opened the scoring for BU in the 48th minute off a pass from senior forward Kim Povill (Massapequa, N.Y.). Povill lofted a ball into the box from the right side and Foster headed it in after going up in the air against the Stony Brook goalkeeper. The assist was Povill's sixth of the season.

Stony Brook tied the game in the 56th minute when junior forward Kate Collins took a pass from Brooke Baruto and found the right corner of the goal for her first goal of the season.

Sophomore goalkeeper Jen McEachron (Deer Park, N.Y.) made her first career start for Binghamton and made seven saves.

Stony Brook outshot Binghamton 16-14.

Foster's goal was the first of her career and snapped the Seawolves' eight-game shutout streak.

Binghamton returns to action on Sunday when the Bearcats travel to play Maine. Kick-off is set for 11 a.m.
