Immediate Release: October 5, 2006
VESTAL, N.Y. - Junior midfielder Tricia Reed (Oswego, N.Y.) scored the game-winner less than a minute into overtime to give Binghamton (5-6-2, 2-2 America East) a 1-0 victory over visiting New Hampshire (3-8, 1-3 AE) in an America East Conference women's soccer game Thursday afternoon from West Gym Field. With the win, the Bearcats extended their home unbeaten streak to nine games (7-0-2).
Just 47 seconds into the first overtime period, Reed collected a short pass from sophomore forward Kelly Haslinger (Boston, N.Y.) and ended the contest with an arching 20-yard shot just under the crossbar. The tally was Reed's team-high fourth of the season and third game-winner.
"It was a tremendous battle today and I'm very proud of our team," head coach Jeff Leightman said. "Both teams fought hard and fortunately we were able to come out on top. We needed this win to get back into the thick of things in the conference. It was just a great team effort."
Senior goalkeeper Kristie Bowers (Rochester, N.Y.) made eight saves, including one from point blank range with 31 minutes to go, to record her fourth solo shutout of the season.
Bearcats have blanked the last five opponents to visit West Gym
Field and have allowed only one goal at home all season.
