BURLINGTON, Vt. - Vermont extended a 1-0 halftime lead with two goals in the second period en route to a 3-0 win over visiting Binghamton (3-5-2, 0-1 AE) in the America East women's soccer opener for both teams Sunday afternoon.
Despite owning a 14-12 margin in shots and an 8-4 advantage in corner kicks, BU dropped its conference opener for the fourth consecutive season. It also was the third straight loss to the Catamounts (3-5-1, 1-0 AE), dating back to the 2004 season.
"Vermont outworked and outplayed us today," head coach Jeff Leightman said. "We had lots of chances in the first half but couldn't tie the game up. We have to figure out ways to stop beating ourselves. We have to learn from this and move on."
Vermont wasted no time taking control of the game, scoring just 3:11 into the contest on a corner kick. The Catamounts held a 1-0 halftime lead and doubled that margin when BU surrendered an own goal in the 52nd minute. Vermont completed the scoring in the 81st minute.
Senior goalkeeper Kristie Bowers (Rochester, N.Y.) made four saves for the Bearcats, who next play at Stony Brook on Thursday night.
