Bearcats top Siena 9-5

LOUDONVILLE, N.Y.--Freshman attacker Phil Cavallo (Cedarhurst, N.Y./Lawrence) scored four goals and added two assists as visiting Binghamton (4-7) topped Siena (1-12) 9-5 in a non-conferene game Thursday afternoon.

The game was tied 2-2 at halftime after both teams scored single goals in each of the first two periods. It remained deadlocked until midway through the third quarter, when Cavallo scored three straight goals in a seven-minute span to give Binghamton a 5-2 lead. Siena battled back, however, scoring a pair of goals just 17 seconds apart late in the quarter to pull within 5-4 heading into the final period. In the decisive fourth quarter, Binghamton outscored the Saints 4-1 for the final margin.

Binghamton received one goal and one assist apiece from freshman attacker Brian Chaapel (Penn Yan, N.Y./Penn Yan Academy), freshman midfielder Joe Conner (Ijamsville, Md./Urbana), and freshman attacker Brian Morgan (Littleton, Col./Heritage). Also scoring goals were freshman midfielders Joe Vavala (Dewey Beach, Del./Cape Henlopen) and Rob Christy (Staten Island, N.Y./Tottenville).

The Bearcats were outshot 20-18 and gave up 33 ground balls compared to scooping just 28 of their own. Freshman goalie Kevin McKeown (Brewster, N.Y.) made 16 saves in goal, one off his season high.

Binghamton concludes its second season of competition on Saturday at 1 p.m. with a road contest against Colgate.

NOTES: Cavallo established a new school record with six points (4 goals, 2 assists) in today's game ... He also held the previous record of five points in a game, having scored five goals in a 10-7 win over Lafayette earlier this season.
