Game File

VESTAL, N.Y.-- The University of New Hampshire (8-5-5) defeated Binghamton University (6-7-4) 1-0 in an America East Tournament quarterfinal match Saturday night at the Bearcats Sports Complex. In a rematch of last week's regular season battle for postseason seeding, the Wildcats avenged a 1-0 loss in the second sudden death overtime period as they advance to the semifinals to face top-seeded Boston University. The Bearcats season ends in the quarterfinals for the second season in a row.

"I thought we did a good job of getting to the end line and getting some good crosses in," said head coach Paul Marco. "I thought their goalkeeper made a couple of pretty good saves. In the end, it was a very tight game, and we had a moment where we didn't execute that well and it cost us the match."

UNH entered the scoring column when a BU defender made a play back to the goalkeeper, but incidentally headed the ball over the keeper's head and into the team's own net. The Wildcats made an initial offensive surge up the field, which forced the defender to quickly make the play back to the keeper.

Freshman goalkeeper Chris Hayen made five saves in the match.

With an 11-9 differential, the Wildcats owned the shot advantage for the match, putting six of the eleven shots on goal.
