    Women’s Soccer Ties Binghamton, Falls to BU

    Women’s Soccer Ties Binghamton 1-1

    863 minutes and 33 seconds. One month and four days. That’s how long keeper Marisa Viola had kept Stony Brook’s opposition scoreless. A header by Binghamton’s Charlotte Foster erased the seventh longest scoreless streak in NCAA women’s Division I history but the Seawolves were able to tie the game in the second half and extend their unbeaten streak to 10 straight games with a 1-1 tie at Binghamton Thursday night.

    The game was one of firsts in many respects. Foster’s goal was the first of her career while SBU tied the game on Kate Collin’s first goal of the season. Binghamton keeper Jen McEachron, a sophomore, held the first-place Seawolves in check in the first start of her career as well.

    SBU tied the game in the 56th minute when Kate Collins powered a shot into the right side of the net after a pass from Brooke Barbuto.

    Binghamton at 2-9-3 for the season seemed happy to escape with a tie. Head coach Jeff Leightman was very proud of how his team played and called it a ‘great, great team effort.’ SBU at 7-2-5 remained unbeaten in its last 10 games, but probably felt like they lost a great opportunity for a win.

    Seawolves Fall to BU 3-0

    It had to end sometime. The Seawolves 3-0 loss to Boston University snapped their 10 game unbeaten streak, and the defeat was worse because it allowed the Terriers to pass SBU in the standings.

    The Seawolves came into the game riding a long unbeaten streak with a keeper, in Marisa Viola, who had allowed only one goal since mid-September. But they were forced to play catch up early when the Terriers scored off a corner kick in the 10th minute. Insurance goals in the 39th and 56th minutes all but sealed the victory for BU.

    Stony Brook was kept off the scoreboard but not for lack of an attack. They peppered the BU keeper with seven shots in the first 29 minutes but were unable to put one past her. On the other hand, Viola seemed off her game for what must have felt like the first time in ages. She allowed three of six shots to score, while BU’s keeper had 14 saves, one shy of a team record.

    The Seawolves have had a great season but now sit in third place in the America East conference after two games where they didn’t play their best. They will try to get that winning feeling back in the final game of the regular season. The game is at Maine on Sunday afternoon at 12 p.m.
