Women's soccer team falls to Syracuse 1-0 in overtime

Box Score

Vestal, N.Y. — Junior midfielder Anne-Marie Lapalme scored the game-winning goal 2:40 into the first sudden-death overtime period, giving Syracuse (2-1-1) a 1-0 win over Binghamton (2-1-1) today at West Gym Field. The loss snapped the Bearcats’ three-game unbeaten streak.

Lapalme took a pass from sophomore forward Stephanie Sybert 10 yards to the left of the goal. She then drilled the ball past Binghamton junior goalkeeper Lauren Cherry (Wyncote, Pa./ Cheltenham) at the 92:40 mark of the game.

“We are obviously disappointed,” said head coach Jeff Leightman. “This was a game that could have gone either way. We did not come out well in the first half but we had our chances in the second half. One team was bound to catch break on a shot and unfortunately we didn’t get the break we needed.”

The loss overshadowed a solid performance by Cherry, who made seven saves.

“Lauren played well,” said Leightman. “In the first half, she really had to come up big because we were getting dominated (by Syracuse).”

Binghamton had a chance to score with 4:08 left in regualation when Syracuse freshman goalie Emily Kowalczyk was given a yellow card for charging into sophomore forward Tatiana Mathelier (Pomona, N.Y./ Saddle River Day (N.J.). Freshman defender Meghan Taylor (Burlington, Ontario/ Notre Dame) took the ensuing free kick but her shot hit the crossbar.

The Orangewomen outshot Binghamton 5-3 in the first half but the Bearcats held an 11-8 edge in the second half. Each team had one shot in the extra session.

Binghamton travels to St. John’s for a 7 p.m. game on Tuesday.
