Hello! Hello! We Are the Bearcat Boys!

The crowd at last night's Binghamton-Syracuse game was announced at 678 fans. For the Bearcat coaches and players, however, it was a special group of 15 fans that made the match feel as if it were being held at the Bearcats Sports Complex. The BU Soccer Hooligans ventured up I-81 last night to witness the 2-1 Binghamton win.

Homecoming Recap

Well, the 2,433 fans who showed up for the Homecoming game between Binghamton and Adelphi got their money's worth. It was a game that started out slowly but thanks to a furious final 10 minutes, left both teams and the near-sellout crowd emotionally spent. Although it was not a win, one could make the case that Saturday's game was yet another in the growing list of memorable Homecoming games at the Bearcat Sports Complex.

Homecoming Weekend Begins

Thursday's training session saw the first BU men's soccer alum return to campus. Matt Ryan, who graduated last spring, made an appearance on the sidelines. He had a job interview in New Jersey earlier in the day and rather than return home to the Washington D.C. area, he decided to continue up to campus.

Just for Kicks

Last Tuesday, sophomore midfielder Tommy Moon took part in one of the more usual media interviews any BU men's soccer player has ever done. He was invited back to Maine-Endwell High School, from where he graduated in 2010, to take part in a football field goal kicking contest against YNN Sports Reporter Chris Whalen. The event was the first in a series called, "The Whalen Challenge" that YNN intends on making into a regular part of its sports programming.

Ten Years Later

Today marks the 10-year anniversary of the most emotional game I have ever covered for the Binghamton men's soccer program. It was a game in which the crowd was quieter than it had ever been and the players were competing with heavy hearts. It was game that was supposed to have been played the previous day, but of course, that did not happen.

Pardon the Interruption

This past Wednesday started out as a normal work day for me. I had just gotten to my desk, made a few calls and was ready to write a recap of Tommy Moon's visit back to Maine Endwell high school for a YNN special feature for that day's Daily Update. A call from my family at home changed all of that.

Nike/West Virgnia Classic Wrap Up

If quick starts was the theme of the Bearcats' first two games, it was a strong finish that powered them to a win against Houston Baptist on Sunday. After averaging 2.0 goals in its first two games, Binghamton was kept off the scoreboard until the 73rd minute on Sunday. The rest of the game, however, featured four goals. We talked to two of the primary contributors during their bus ride home from Morgantown.

Patience is a Virtue

Defense has been trademark of the Binghamton men's soccer program, especially since Paul Marco arrived as the head coach in 2002. This year, the job of protecting the goal falls to a group of five players who have patiently waited their turn to come on the field. Each of them redshirted or did not play in their first season with the program. Since they have come on the field, however, they have made their impact on the program clear.
