BURLINGTON, Vt. - Jessica Roach, Vanessa VanderZalm and Sydney Mas combined for 24 points to lead Vermont past Binghamton, 19-7, in Saturday's America East women's lacrosse game at Virtue Field. With the victory, Vermont improves to 11-5 overall and 2-2 in league play, while Binghamton falls to 6-9 on the year and 0-4 in conference.

Mas registered five goals in the contest and is now tied with Lyn Jordan for most goals in a single season (57) in program history. Roach tallied a career-high 11 points on five goals and six assists, and tied the UVM record for most assists in a single game. Vanessa VanderZalm chipped in with four goals and three assists to help pace the Catamounts. Brianne Arthur collected a team-high four points (2 g, 2 ast), while Renee Kiviat added three scores and Alex Fisher netted two goals to lead Binghamton.

Meg Hopkins stopped five shots in the Vermont net to register her fourth win of the season. Erin McNulty took the loss for the Bearcats despite making eight saves. After a Binghamton goal from Brianne Arthur to open the contest, Vermont rattled off four straight scores, including a pair from VanderZalm, to jump out to a three-goal advantage at the 17:33 mark of the first half.

The two teams traded a pair of scores in the final 13-plus minutes of the period, as Vermont took a 6-3 advantage into the break. Roach and Lucy Mower tallied the goals for the Catamounts during the stretch. UVM opened the second half with four goals in the first six minutes. Mas and VanderZalm picked up two goals apiece, as the Catamounts extended their lead to 10-3 with 24:10 to play. Kiviat ended the Vermont run with an unassisted score, but the Catamounts answered back with tallies from Karli MacKendrick and Mas to add to their lead. Following Arthur's second score of the contest for the Bearcats, Vermont scored seven straight goals in a span of just under 12 minutes to extend its lead to 19-5. Roach notched three goals and Gretchen Remien added two to pace UVM during the spurt.

Binghamton added two goals in the final 1:14, but Vermont went on for the 19-7 victory for its 11th win of the season. The Catamounts wrap up the regular season as they host #14/17 Stony Brook next Saturday (April 26) at 11 a.m. as part of UVM's senior day.
