Binghamton men's soccer settles for 1-1 tie against Albany

Box score

VESTAL, N.Y.-- In an America East Conference game between in-state rivals on Saturday, the weather emerged as the big winner. The Binghamton men's soccer team (10-4-2, 3-2-1 AE) settled for a 1-1 tie against Albany (5-7-3, 2-3-1 AE) as the temperature hit 45 degrees and a steady downpour of rain led to very sloppy field conditions.

Sophomore Matt Narode (Glenmont, N.Y.) scored his sixth goal of the season at the 26:37 mark to put Binghamton up 1-0. He took a rebound right in front of the goal and shot the ball into the left-hand corner of the net.

In the first half, the Bearcats outshot the Great Danes 9-4.

Albany, however, turned the tables in the second half and tied the game at 57:49 on a goal by sophomore back Mike Dineen. He took a pass from junior midfielder Stephen Hall and fired it in the the goal from five yards out to the right.

The shots were even at 4-4 in the second half.

After two scoreless 10-minute sudden-death overtime periods, the two teams settled for a tie.

Binghamton outshot Albany 16-9 for the game.

The Bearcats head to Hartford next Saturday for a 7 p.m. game.

In Wednesday's 1-0 win over Stony Brook, an assist was credited to junior forward Peter Sgueglia (Schenectady, N.Y.). That assist has now been given to junior forward Joey Neilson (Boothwyn, N.Y.).
