Binghamton Women's Lacrosse fall to New Hampshire on the road

DURHAM, N.H. – The Binghamton women’s lacrosse team fell to host New Hampshire 18-5 in an America East matchup, Saturday afternoon at Memorial Field in Durham. The Bearcats (6-7, 0-3 AE) were outshout 31-15 by the Wildcats (7-6, 2-1 AE) en route to dropping their third straight conference game.

Binghamton was led by junior Renee Kiviat’s three goals, netting her first career hat trick in the defeat. Freshman Jocelyn Penteck and Valerie DeNapoli scored the Bearcats’ two other goals. Binghamton leading scorer freshman Bri Arthur was limited to just one shot attempt.

Sophomore goalie Erin McNulty was tagged with the loss after playing the first 38:36 for the Bearcats before giving way to junior Kara Pafumi who finished the final 21:24 of the game. McNulty made six saves after facing 19 first half shots by New Hamsphire. Pafumi made a pair of saves in relief.

New Hampshire scored the game’s first nine goals before Kiviat netted Binghamton’s first goal on a free position attempt at the 11:41 mark of the first half. Almost 30 seconds later Penteck recorded her third goal of the season to give the Bearcats some momentum.

However, the Binghamton offense stalled late in the first half and New Hampshire capitalized with a pair of goals to take an 11-2 lead into the break. New Hampshire went 9-for-14 in the draw circle to aid its nine-goal halftime lead. The Bearcats were restricted to just seven first half shots.

Binghamton struck first in the second half as Kiviat netted her second goal on a feed from senior Angela Vespa. The eight-goal deficit would be as close as the Bearcats would come however, as New Hampshire responded with a 4-0 run to extend its lead to 15-3 with 23:59 left to play. DeNapoli converted a free position shot before recording her first collegiate assist on a feed to Kiviat to cap the scoring for Binghamton.

Nine different New Hampshire players scored on the afternoon as the Wildcats posted a season-best 18 goals. Sophomore Nicole Grote recorded a game-high four goals while junior Laura Puccia and freshman Marissa Gruello registered three tallies each.

The Bearcats were just 2-for-6 on free position attempts and allowed five extra-man opportunities. Each team committed 16 turnovers while New Hampshire held a slight advantage in ground balls 15-10. Binghamton was 9-of-13 in the clear game but struggled all afternoon in the draw circle winning just eight of the 25 draws.

Binghamton hosts Colgate on Wednesday, April 16 in a midweek non-conference matchup before head to Burlington, Vermont to face the Catamounts on Saturday, April 19 at Virture Field.
