BURLINGTON, Vt.—Joe Losier scored twice, leading Vermont (6-3-0, 1-0-0 AE) to a 2-0 win over Binghamton (4-6-0, 0-1-0 AE) in an America East Conference men’s soccer game on Saturday at Centennial Field. The loss snapped the Bearcats’ three-game winning streak against the Catamounts, dating back to 2008.
The Bearcats stayed in the game for the opening 45 minutes, as the only goal they surrendered was a penalty kick by Losier in the 18th minute. Sophomore goalkeeper Chris Hayen saved the other three shots that were on goal.
It was a pair of Catamount goals midway through the second half, however, that sealed the game. In the 66th minute, Losier was stationed in front of the goal when he received a pass from Brad Cole. He then slid the ball into the net, giving the Catamounts a 2-0 advantage.
Juan Peralta then ice the game with an rebound goal in the 77th minute. Nick O’Neil, who fired the initial shot, was credited with the assist.
“I thought both teams came out with a lot of energy but after the penalty kick, we were the ones who were chasing the game trying to get that tying goal,” head coach Paul Marco said. “That wore us out as the game went on.”
Vermont held a 24-6 shot advantage for the game.
The Bearcats head to New Hampshire next Saturday for a 5 p.m. game.
