WASHINGTON, D.C. - Senior midfielder Tommy Moon netted the game’s lone goal in the 25th minute and Binghamton men’s soccer (1-2) made it stand up for a 1-0 road win at American (1-2) Friday night from Reeves Field.
Moon collected a loose ball in the box and drilled a 15-yard shot into the corner.
“Tommy had a terrific finish for the goal,” head coach Paul Marco said.
Sophomore keeper Stefano Frantelizzi made five saves to preserve the shutout.
“I’m happy for the guys,” Marco said. “They played very hard today and it’s great to get our first victory. I thought we played very well over the last 25 minutes of the first half and then played well enough in the second half to get the result. Stef (Frantellizzi) made two quality saves to keep them off the board.”
American held a 24-9 advantage in shots but the shots on goal were even at 5-5.
Moon had a chance to pad his scoring output in the waning seconds but with the Eagles keeper pressing forward to aid the attack, Moon missed the goal with a 40-yard strike.
Binghamton plays at George Mason at 1 p.m. on Sunday in Fairfax, Va.
