Binghamton men's soccer loses 1-0 at Boston in America East finals

[box score...]

BOSTON, Mass.-- Senior forward Jin Oh scored in the 79th minute, leading Boston (11-5-3) to a 1-0 win over Binghamton (12-6-3) in the America East Conference men's soccer finals on Saturday afternoon at Nickerson Field. The Terriers capture their first championship since 2004 while the Bearcats were denied their third conference title in six years. Binghamton was making its conference-record sixth consecutive appearance in the America East championship game.

Oh's winning goal came on a lob from 20 yards over the Binghamton defense. It was his third goal of the season and was assisted by junior midfielder Richy Dorman. The Terriers outshot the Bearcats 14-4 for the game but were unable to find the back of the net until Oh's decisive shot.

"GIve Boston credit," head coach Paul Marco said. "They are a great team. I am proud of our team and what they accomplished during this tournament. They represented Binghamton University well."

Junior goalkeeper Jason Stenta stopped four shots.

Junior forward Cameron Keith, senior midfielder Cody Germain and senior back Barry Neville were named to the America East All-Tournament Team.

Binghamton is one of several teams on the bubble for a bid to the upcoming NCAA Tournament. The brackets will be revealed Monday at 6 p.m. on ESPN News.
