BALTIMORE, MD.—The Binghamton men’s soccer team (6-10-0, 2-5-0 AE) ended conference play with a 3-0 loss at UMBC (10-4-4, 4-2-1 AE) on Saturday night. While the Bearcats have one more non-conference game on Tuesday, their post season seed has already been finalized. Binghamton will visit Stony Brook next Saturday for a noon quarterfinal match.
Against the Retrievers, the Bearcats ran into a squad which had won its previous four games by a 15-3 margin. After each team fired a pair of shot on goal in the opening 15 minutes of action, Kadeem Dacres put UMBC up 1-0 in the 19th minute.
In the second half, UMBC scored twice in a span of 12 minutes. Madamou Kansaye scored his first goal of the season in the 52nd minute. Pete Caringi then netted his conference-best 14th goal of the year in the 64th minute.
UMBC was credited with a 21-7 shot advantage for the game.
UMBC locked up the No. 2 seed for the America East Tournament with the victory. Earlier in the day, Vermont clinched the No. 1 seed with a 2-1 overtime win over Stony Brook. No. 4 Albany will host No. 5 New Hampshire next Saturday in the other quarterfinal match.
Vermont will host the winner of the Albany-New Hampshire game in the semifinal round on Wednesday, Nov. 7. UMBC, meanwhile, will host the Binghamton-Stony Brook winner the same day.
