Binghamton got a goal back with just 1:48 remaining before the half when freshman forward Danielle White (Haddon Township, N.J.) scored off a pass from senior forward Tracy Kasmarcik (Binghamton, N.Y./ Susquehanna Valley).
In the second half, however, Syracuse went on another scoring binge, netting four goals in a span of 15:37 to ice the game.

Freshman goalie Kristie Bowers (Rochester, N.Y./ Greek Olympia) made her first career start and recorded three saves.
Binghamton travels to Niagara for a 3 p.m. game on Sunday.
