BU women's soccer suffers 4-0 loss at Syracuse
Orange explodes for four goals in second half

Box Score

SYRACUSE, N.Y. -- Host Syracuse (3-3-2) exploded for four second-half goals to turn a 0-0 halftime score into a 4-0 win over Binghamton women's soccer (2-4) Sunday afternoon at the SU Soccer Stadium.

The Orange, which outshot BU 16-3 for the game (12-1 in second half), scored all four goals in a span of just over 20 minutes. They tallied twice in a 2:13 span midway through the second half (68th and 70th minutes) and added two more late goals to complete the scoring.

“We battled and played pretty well in the first half," head coach Sarah McClellan said. "But in the second half we lost our focus and didn't maintain responsibility for 90 minutes. When you do that against a Big East team they will take advantage. We need to refocus ourselves and recommit to playing a 90-minute game. If we do that, we will bounce back."

Freshmen keeper Carrie Martin made six saves.

Senior center back Leora Kenney was named the America East Player of the Game.

"Leora did a good job giving every ounce of her energy," McClellan said. "She's a great leader and someone who is setting the right example, in terms of being prepared to give whatever it takes when we hit the field."

Binghamton hosts Iona at 7 p.m. Wednesday at the Bearcats Sports Complex.
