Binghamton men's soccer releases 2010 schedule

Complete Schedule

VESTAL, N.Y.-- The Binghamton men's soccer team has announced its 2010 schedule, which begins on Sept. 3 with a 5 p.m. game against UNC-Wilmington at the West Virginia/Nike Classic. The Bearcats' 17-game regular-season schedule includes seven home games and three in-season tournaments. In addition, three of the Bearcats' opponents finished the 2009 season nationally ranked, five won conference championships and six advanced to the NCAA Tournament.

UNC-Wilmington won the Colonial Athletic Association (CAA) title last year and was ranked in both major polls at the end of the season (No. 18 by College Soccer News and No. 22 by the NSCAA). Binghamton's other opponent at the West Virginia Classic is Monmouth, which captured the Northeast Conference (NEC) crown. That game is scheduled for Sept. 5 at 12:30 p.m.

In addition to taking part in the West Virginia/Nike Classic, Binghamton also heads to the Penn State Classic (Sept. 10-12) and the Colgate Raider Adidas Classic (Sept. 17-19).

At the Penn State Classic, Binghamton faces Ohio State on Sept. 10. The Buckeyes won the Big 10 title last season and were ranked No. 19 in both major polls. The host Nittany Lions, whom the Bearcats square off against on Sept. 12, were ranked No. 29 by College Soccer News.

Binghamton's home schedule is highlighted by its Oct. 9 Homecoming game against Vermont as well as a pair of games against defending conference champions. Stony Brook, which won the America East championship, comes to town for an Oct. 23 game while Patriot League champion Bucknell visits on Nov. 2.

In the previous two Homecoming games, the Bearcats have drawn sellout crowds at the Bearcats Sports Complex. Against Rhode Island last year, a facility-record 2,604 fans were on hand. The 2008 game, also against Vermont, drew a then record crowd of 2,534 fans.

Other conference home games come against Hartford (Oct. 9) and New Hampshire (Oct. 30). On the road, the Bearcats face UMBC (Oct. 2), Albany (Oct. 16) and Boston University (Oct. 27).

Rounding out the schedule is a home game against Cornell (Sept. 26) and a Sept. 29 road game at Niagara.

Since 2003, Binghamton has advanced to the America East championship game six times and the NCAA Tournament twice (2003 and 2006). The Bearcats have also ranked among the top 25 teams in the nation in terms of average home attendance since the Bearcats Sports Complex opened in 2007.
