soccer beats Albany 3-0, regain first place in the America East
VESTAL, N.Y. -- Sophomore forward Cameron
Keith (Aberdeenshire, Scotland) had a goal and an assist,
leading Binghamton (12-4-0, 4-2-0 AE) to a 3-0 win over Albany
(2-10-3, 1-3-2 AE) in an America East Conference men's soccer
game on Saturday night at the Bearcats Sports Complex. With the
victory, the Bearcats move into first place in the conference
with a pair of road games remaining in the regular season.
Keith now leads the America East with 10 goals and 22 points.
He is the first Bearcat to score 10 goals in a season since Charles
Darkwah netted a conference-best 12 goals during the 2004 season.
Sophomore back Kyle
Kucharski (Maine, N.Y.) set up the first goal of the game
when he disrupted an Albany clear in the Great Dane end of the
field. He then found a wide-open Keith who fired the ball in
the net at the 15:13 mark of the game.
At the 19:17 mark, junior midfielder Justin
Leskow was fouled inside the box, setting up a penalty kick.
Junior back Barry
Neville (Mearns Castle, Scotland) made the attempt, putting
the Bearcats up 2-0.
With just 1:31 left in regulation, it was Keith's turn to set
up a goal. He fed the ball inside the box to Scott
Zobre (Poughkeepsie, N.Y.), who proceeded to score his second
goal of the season.
Binghamton outshot Albany 15-6
for the game. Sophomore goalkeeper Jason
Stenta (Binghamton, N.Y.) made three saves to record his
10th shutout of the season.
The Bearcats would clinch their
second consecutive America East regular season title should they
win their final two games. Standing in Binghamton's way, however,
is Vermont, who the Bearcats visit on Wednesday at 2 p.m. The
Catamounts were the America East runner up last season. In addition,
the Bearcats face another stiff challenge with a 1 p.m. game
on Saturday at Stony Brook. The Seawolves won the 2005 conference
NOTES: Binghamton's 12 wins ties the 2003 and 2005 school
record for the most Division I wins in a season. The last year
Binghamton won more than 12 games in a season came in in 1993,
when the then-Colonials finished 14-6-1 at the NCAA Division
