BU women's soccer topples Temple 3-1 for third straight win

Box Score

VESTAL, N.Y. - Freshman forward Jamie Holliday scored twice to lead Binghamton (3-3-1) to a 3-1 victory over visiting Temple (4-2-1) Friday night from the Bearcats Sports Complex. The triumph was BU's third straight - the team has outscored opponents 6-1 during the win streak.

Holiday opened the scoring just 56 seconds into the contest, sending a ball from the right flank over the Owls' keeper and into the far corner. She added her second goal of the game and third of the season in the 18th minute. Redshirt freshman midfielder Brittany Walsh sent a thru ball behind the Temple defense and Holliday slotted it past the rushing keeper for a 2-0 margin.

After the Bearcats let down late in the half, Temple countered just 31 seconds before intermission when Morgyn Seigfried chipped a ball over BU keeper Jen McEachron.

Senior captain Amanda Casares gave the BU a second-half insurance goal, however, taking a feed from junior back Stefani Knopick and blasting a 12-yarder past the Ows' keeper for her second goal of the season.

McEachron and junior Erin Iman split time in net with McEachron making three saves in the first half and Iman adding two stops in the second.

"I'm very happy with the way we played in the second half," head coach Sarah McClellan said. "We let down in the first half and we can't do that in conference play. But it was a nice second half - something we've been looking for all season. It was a complete team effort tonight."

Binghamton outshot Temple 10-9.

The Bearcats open their America East slate at defending conference champion Boston University on September 27.

Holliday was named the America East Player of the Game for Binghamton.
