VESTAL, N.Y.—The NCAA has released its men’s soccer weekly statistical rankings and senior forward Jake Keegan is among the top offensive players on the Division I level. Through five games, he is ranked fifth with 2.40 points per game and is tied for fifth with 1.00 goals per contest.
Keegan turned in one of his greatest games against Hofstra last Friday at the Bearcats Sports Complex. He scored twice in a span of 33 seconds, marking the second time in his career he has scored twice. Against Buffalo on August 31 and Army on Sept. 3, Keegan finished with a goal and an assist.
Currently, Keegan has 22 career goals and 55 career points, both of which are the highest totals recorded by a Binghamton player during the program’s 12-year NCAA Division I era. In his freshman and junior seasons, he led the Bearcats in scoring with seven goals.
Fast starts are nothing new for Keegan. In 2011, he scored a goal in each of the first four games of the season. He concluded the year with a career-high five points (two goals, one assist) in a 5-1 win over regular-season champion Boston University.
As a team, Binghamton ranks second in the America East Conference with 1.60 goals per game. Keegan, meanwhile, is the individual leader in goals per game, points per game and shots per game (4.00).
Binghamton (2-3-0) heads to UNC-Wilmington this weekend for the Hilton Garden Inn Classic. The Bearcats square off against Appalachian State on Friday at 5 p.m. before meeting the host team at 2 p.m. on Sunday.
