BU Women's Soccer nets first America East Win

ALBANY, N.Y. - Binghamton womens soccer (6-4-2, 1-1-1 AE) netted a goal in each half and produced a wide shots margin en route to a 2-0 road win at Albany Thursday night from Bob Ford Field. The win, BUs first in America East play, came with the accompanying three points, moving the Bearcats up several rungs in the standings.

The Bearcats pressured the host Great Danes (1-11-1, 0-3-1 AE) from the opening whistle, registering three shots in the first 2 1/2 minutes, including one that banged off the crossbar. Binghamton peppered Albany with nine shots in the first 22 minutes and got on the board when sophomore forward Stephani Church netted her team-high fourth goal of the season in the 22nd minute. Sophomore midfielder Katherine Corcoran delivered a cross to the far post, where the ever-opportunistic Church knocked it home for a 1-0 lead. The first half was then halted more than 15 minutes after an Albany player was injured.

Binghamton continued to push the attack in the first half and held a 19-2 shots advantage at the break.

Just 4:54 into the second half, BU got an insurance goal when junior midfielder Emily Nuss tallied her second of the season. After an Albany yellow card near midfield, junior back Connie Gormley sent a booming kick into the box and after one bounce, Nuss swiveled and her right-footed volley beat the Danes keeper high.
The Bearcats finished with a decisive 29-7 shots advantage.
It was a great team effort tonight, head coach Sarah McClellan said. We were committed to the game and I thought our attack showed a lot of improvement. We put a lot of good pressure in front of Albanys goal and thats something we will look to build on. Were excited to get the win.

Senior keeper Carrie Martin played the first half and junior Gaby Gold took over in the second half to tag-team the shutout. Gold recorded three saves and BU notched its sixth shutout of the season and third in the last four games.

Binghamton next makes the eight-hour bus trip to Orono, Maine for Sundays match against the league-leading Black Bears (3-0-1 AE). Kick-off is set for noon.
