Immediate Release: October 15, 2006
O'Shaughnessy's game-winner came at the 62:07 mark following a pass from junior midfielder Tricia Reed (Oswego, N.Y.). Reed slotted a pass inside the box to O'Shaughnessy, who then buried the shot into the far right corner for her first tally of the season. Reed's assist gave her a team-high nine points this fall.
"I'm very proud of our team today," head coach Jeff Leightman said. "We beat a great Maine team. The fact that they've been nationally ranked tells us that we're finally getting back to where we should be. It was a tough game - Maine gave us problems but we were fortunate to get the goal today. We brought a very strong commitment level for 90 minutes and that was the difference in the game."
Senior keeper Kristie Bowers (Rochester, N.Y.) recorded four saves to notch her sixth solo shutout of the season.
The victory puts Binghamton into sole possession of third place in the America East standings with one game to play before the conference tournament. BU (12 pts.) trails only Boston (5-0-1, 16 pts.) and Hartford (4-0-2, 14 pts.) in the standings. The top two teams receive first-round byes in the six-team championship format.
The Bearcats conclude their regular season Thursday night at Hartford.
