DURHAM, N.H.--Host New Hampshire (5-4-2, 1-0 America East) scored the game-winner 3:09 into the second overtime period to knock off Binghamton (6-2-1, 0-1 AE) in the women's soccer conference opener for each school Friday afternoon.
The Wildcats, picked to finish third in the pre-season poll (BU was selected eighth of 10), rallied from a 2-1 halftime deficit to remain unbeaten against the Bearcats in the all-time series (2-0-2).
a very disappointing loss," head coach Jeff Leightman said.
"We played a pretty good first half and controlled play.
The game-tying goal wasn't a great goal and the winner was from
far out on an angle. It's just a shame because I thought we played
well enough to win."
As time wound down in regulation, the Wildcats netted the equalizer on a 30-yard shot to the far post with just 7:03 left on the clock.
In overtime, New Hampshire held a 5-2 margin in shots, but Mathelier almost ended the contest with her third tally of the game, but the goal was called back on a hand ball. Then early in the second extra-session, the Wildcats attacked down the left wing and ended the affair with a 35-yard blast to the far post.
Hampshire owned a 20-16 shot advantage.
