Binghamton men's soccer beats Albany 3-0, regain first place in the America East

Box Score

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 crown.

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 III level.
