Nationally-ranked Binghamton upset at Boston University 2-0
Bearcats lose first regular-season game since Sept. 20, 2003

Box score

Boston, Mass.-- After 370 days, the Binghamton men's soccer team (6-1-3, 0-1-0) has been defeated in a regular-season game. The Bearcats lost at Boston University (2-4-0, 1-0-0) 2-0 on Saturday night in its first America East Conference game of the season. Since losing 2-1 at home to Marist on Sept. 20, 2003, Binghamton has gone 12-0-8 in regular-season games and 14-1-10 overall.

"We didn't take advantage of our chances tonight and Boston did," head coach Paul Marco said. "They got their goals off of set plays which is something we should have done. They are a good team."

Binghamton outshot Boston 4-2 in the first half but the two teams entered halftime locked in a 0-0 tie.

The Terriers capitalized on their first scoring chance in the second half as junior midfielder Jamie Johnson lifted a corner kick into the center of the box and senior forward Erik Evjen headed the ball into the net to give Boston U. a 1-0 lead at 48:28. Looking to put an insurance goal on the board, Johnson sent a free kick from 40-yards out into the box in the 67th minute of play. Sophomore back Steven Gahl fired a header into the net to put the Terriers up 2-0 at 66:25.

Boston outshot Binghamton 7-6 for the game and had a 4-3 advantage in corner kicks.

NOTES: In three meetings against the Terriers, Binghamton has still yet to score a goal ... the two-goal setback for Binghamton was its largest margin of defeat since losing 5-0 to Northeastern in the final game of the 2002 season.
