Vestal, NY (WBNG Binghamton) The Binghamton University women's soccer team has been working hard in the preseason.
Sunday, the preseason is over and it's time to get down to business.

The Bearcats have 10 new freshman on the roster this year.

Head coach Sarah McClellan says the team is coming together in the preseason, but adds there are still areas to improve on which is normal for this time of year.

The biggest question mark will be where will the scoring come from.

McClellan says her team has several players that are capable of scoring and expects goals to come from a variety of players.

The biggest key is to make sure the veteran players don't try to do too much, especially with so much youth on the field.

"Emphasizing to the players to play within themselves, to really make the players around them better, bring out their strengths and try not to do too much and I think when we get so excited about performing, we sometimes try to do too much," McClellan says.

"I think it's just our whole style of play. We like to pass it around, keep possession. We don't look for one person, one all-star so having people come in, we're looking for a lot of people to get time this year, you know, we're looking for the whole team chemistry to come together, not really just one or two people," says senior Emma Kurth.

The Bearcats start the season with three straight road games, starting Sunday afternoon at Siena.
