Thank You

Having lost the America East title game, Binghamton will wait until the NCAA selection show on Monday to see if their season will continue. If it does not, then this will be the final post for the Men's Soccer Daily Update. For the past three months, it has been my pleasure covering, in greater detail, this outstanding program. Indeed, it would have not been possible to keep generating new ideas had it not been for the success of the program, both on and off the field.

Five Years Later

Since the fall of 2003, much has changed with Binghamton athletics. At the time, the Events Center was still under construction and the Bearcats Sports Complex was nearly four years away from being built. Kevin Broadus was still an assistant coach at George Washington University and Rory Quiller had yet to compete in a college pole vault competition.

Revisionist History

Nearly three weeks ago, we put out a list of Cameron Keith's top five goal-scoring performances during his two seasons at Binghamton. We ended the post with the hope that there would be more games ahead worthy of being included on that list. Needless to say, Keith has answered to that in the past two games. Here, therefore, is a revised list of his top five goal scoring performances, as of today.

A Historic Triumph

Where do you start? While it wasn't an America East final, today's 1-0 double-overtime win at Albany has to go down as one of the greatest moments in the program's Division I history. Binghamton became the first team in the 20-year history of the America East Conference to advance to six consecutive championship games. They did it the hard way, going on the road and coming through in the clutch.

Back to Albany

Five weeks ago, the Binghamton men's soccer team squared off against Albany to start its America East schedule. Tomorrow, the Bearcats head back up Interstate 88 for a much more important match. At stake for the Bearcats is a historic sixth consecutive trip to the conference championship game.

A Look Toward the Future

With nine graduating players this season, head coach Paul Marco could be apprehensive about what next year will bring. That, however, is not the case for the seventh-year head coach. Marco cites both several returning players as well as some of this year's freshman as being key components to future Bearcat success.

Fall at Binghamton

When the Binghamton Athletic Department joined the America East Conference seven years ago, the fall sports teams experienced a time of transition. None of the Bearcat squads qualified for the conference tournament and including cross country, the best any of the squads could finish was sixth place. Fast forward to 2008 and things are very different. A look at the events of the past two weekends best illustrates that fact.

Seen and Heard during the America East Quarterfinals

Binghamton defeated New Hampshire 3-1 in the America East quarterfinals on Saturday night at the Bearcats Sports Complex. With the win, the Bearcats head to Albany on Wednesday for the semifinals at 1 p.m. There were several storylines from the win over the Wildcats.

The Three-Team Game

In Paul Marco's first year as the Binghamton men's soccer coach, he was looking for activities to increase the competitive spirit of the team. One such idea was called the Three-Team Game and over the ensuing seven years, it has become a tradition, especially during the postseason.

Alumni Update: Darius Ravangard

In February 2002, Paul Marco was starting his first month on the job at Binghamton and was recruiting players who could change the face of the team. The once-proud men's soccer squad had fallen on lean times prior to his arrival. Marco was therefore looking for players who bought into his vision for what the program could become. One of the players bought into that vision was Darius Ravangard.

When They Last Met

Binghamton and New Hampshire square off in the America East Quarterfinals on Saturday night at the Bearcats Sports Complex. It marks a rematch of the 2004 quarterfinals, which produced one of the most dramatic moments in the Bearcats' post season history. With so many significant playoff memories the past five years, however, that match tends be forgotten by many people in the Binghamton men's soccer community.

Championship Inspiration

Back on March 18, head coach Paul Marco and the men's soccer team ended a training session by heading up to a press conference in the Events Center. Five days earlier, Rory Quiller captured the NCAA Division I indoor pole vault title and Marco decided the best way for the program to honor Binghamton's first-ever Division I national champion was for his entire squad to attend the event. It also gave the players some inspiration from which they can draw upon for their own title quest, which begins this week.

This Date in Men's Soccer History: November 3, 2007

As Binghamton walked on to the field at Stony Brook for their 2007 regular season finale, everything seemed to be pointing against the Bearcats. In its previous three conference road games, the squad was 0-3. The weather conditions were barely above freezing and there was a mixture of wind and rain. Furthermore, Binghamton was returning to the scene of its heartbreaking defeat in the 2005 conference finals.

Alumni Update: Ian Wendel

In 2000, Ian Wendel arrived on campus to begin his freshman season at Binghamton. At the time, the Bearcats were still competing at the Division II level and had yet to be accepted into the America East Conference. In his senior year, however, Wendel was a part of a squad that won the America East title and advanced to the second round of the NCAA Tournament. He was one of only three players (Pat Skinner and James Clancy being the other two) who were a part of the men's soccer program during the entire transformation.

Off They Go to Orono

Binghamton's final regular season game will take place in Orono, Maine on Sunday against the Black Bears. The Bearcats' destination for their next game, however, will also be determined by the events that take place in Boston and Albany this weekend. Head Coach Paul Marco and captain Barry Neville discussed the upcoming weekend before leaving for Maine. They also commented on the BU women's team's win over New Hampshire.
