Binghamton plays to 1-1 against Syracuse in exhibition game

VESTAL, N.Y.-- The Binghamton men's soccer team launched the 2008 campaign by battling to a 1-1 tie against Syracuse on Sunday night at the Bearcats Sports Complex. A crowd of 406 took advantage of the opportunity to get an advance look at the two-time defending America East Conference regular season champions.

After playing to a scoreless tie in regulation, the two squads played a 10-minute period during which each time scored a goal. Freshman forward Andy Tiedt headed in a cross from freshman back Joel Collins with 3:42 remaining. At the 1:00 mark, however, junior forward Tom Perevegyencev deadlocked the score off a pass from junior back Brien Chamney.

Junior goalkeeper Jason Stenta played the first 71 minutes for the Bearcats before freshman Brian Abernethy subbed in for the remaining 29 minutes of play.

Binghamton opens its regular season Aug. 29 against Duquesne at the West Virginia Tournament.
