Binghamton women's soccer falls to Vermont 2-0 in conference opener

Box Score

BINGHAMTON, N.Y. - Binghamton women's soccer (4-5-2, 0-1 America East) dropped its fourth consecutive game, falling 2-0 to Vermont (4-5, 1-0 AE) in the conference opener for both teams Sunday afternoon at West Gym Field. The Bearcats outshot the Catamounts 19-11 but surrendered a goal in each half.

Vermont junior forward Amy Cochran had both goals for the Catamounts - the first coming with 2:29 left to play in the first half and the second in the 68th minute.

"It's very disappointing," head coach Jeff Leightman said of the result. "Obviously it's not good enough to dictate play and create tons of chances. We didn't score and we gave up two goals. Give Vermont credit. They battled hard and finished two of their chances. We couldn't finish our chances and we had a whole bunch."

Junior keeper Kristie Bowers (Rochester, N.Y.) made five saves for the Bearcats.

Binghamton hosts Stony Brook in an America East conference game at 4 p.m. on Thursday.

NOTES: The four-game losing streak is the longest in BU's Division I tenure and the first since the 1985 season when the team started 0-4.... The team's five-game winless streak is the longest in head coach Jeff Leightman's eight-year tenure... The Bearcats have scored just once in their last four games.
