New Hampshire Rallies for Victory over Binghamton

Binghamton gained possession on the draw control, but Duclos and Casey Doyle (Ivyland, Pa.; three GB, three CTO) double teamed Castiglie behind the goal to force another turnover. UNH attacked in transition as Cori Rees (East Hampstead, N.H.) caught an outlet pass at midfield, attacked down the center and scored on a low, close-range shot at 9:36 to trim the deficit to 10-9; it was Rees' first career goal.

Binghamton called time out, but Cohen won the draw control and then finished a feed from Rausch at 9:05 to level the score, 10-10.

Gunts once again kept the Bearcats at bay when she stopped Casiglie's high shot with 7:45 remaining. Duclos picked up the rebound and Cohen drove down the right side of the fan and scored on a shot into the upper-right corner to give UNH its first lead of the game, 11-10, at 6:38.

Binghamton's Lindsay Angelillo caught a pass alone in the middle of the fan at 6:15, but Gunts stopped that high shot and Casiano picked up the ground ball.

UNH extended its lead to 12-10 at 4:50 when Rausch, from the top-right of the fan, found JoJo Curro (Amherst, N.H.) curling behind the net to the left post for a high shot into the goal.

With 58 seconds remaining, Gunts turned aside Wright at the left post, then Gunts denied Zuern at the left post with 28 seconds to play and Stager picked up the ground ball to secure the victory.

In the first half, Binghamton jumped out to a 2-0 lead on goals by Zuern (at 27:15) and Moore (24:36). Simpson, with the assistance of Keagins, made the score 2-1 just 10 seconds later, but Zuern struck again at 24:02 to reestablish a two-goal lead, 3-1.

Sarah Campbell (Saratoga Springs, N.Y.), cutting from left to right across the fan, caught a centering pass from Cohen and scored on a high shot at 20:04 to pull UNH within 3-2. The Bearcats once again had a quick response from Moore at 19:45 but Simpson, who initially dropped Rausch's entry pass, quickly picked the ball off the turf and scored on a low shot from the top of the crease at 19:06.

Goals by Zuern (17:11) and Wright (14:18) pushed Binghamton's lead to 6-3 before Cohen scored on a high free-position shot from the top of the fan at 12:50. Wright scored with 14 seconds remaining in the first half to give the home team a 7-4 halftime lead.

The Bearcats scored the initial two goals of the second half Castiglie at 27:17 and Wright at 25:40 to push the advantage to 9-4. Casiano trimmed the deficit to 9-5 at 14:43 when she maneuvered from the right wing to the middle of the fan and scoring on a shot inside the left post.

New Hampshire finished with the edge in both ground balls (19-17) and draw controls (14-10) while Binghamton had the advantage in shots (29-23) and committed one less turnover (18-19).
