Binghamton men's soccer beats Boston 2-1 in overtime

Box Score

VESTAL, N.Y. -- Sophomore forward Cameron Keith (Aberdeenshire, Scotland) scored a pair of goals, including the game winner with 16 seconds left in the first sudden-death overtime period, leading Binghamton (8-2, 1-0 AE) to a 2-1 win over Boston (5-5, 0-1 AE) in an America East Confernce men's soccer game on Saturday night before 1,782 fans at the Bearcats Sports Complex. The win marked the third straight triumph for the Bearcats.

Keith, who has five goals and an assist the past three games, took advantage of a pile up in front of the Boston goal for a loose ball. Senior midfielder Matt Narode (Glenmont, N.Y.) poked the ball free just enough to allow Keith to fire home the clinching shot.

"This was a fantastic win for our guys over a very good team before a great crowd," head coach Paul Marco said. "Cameron was special tonight and has been playing great the past two weeks."

Despite being outshot 7-3 in the first half, it was Boston who drew first blood. Shuan Taylor took a pass from Aaron O'Neal and got by sophomore goalkeeper Jason Stenta (Binghamton, N.Y.) to give the Terriers a 1-0 at the 16:33 mark. It was Taylor's second goal of the season.

Keith deadlocked the game at the 33:30 mark when he got the ball from senior back Adam Chavez (Endicott, N.Y.) and found the back of the net from close range.

In the second half, Binghamton outshot Boston 9-3 but could not finish off the game. Keith just missed a potential game-winning shot with two seconds left in regulation. Just under 10 minutes later, however, he would more than make ammends.

The Bearcats outshot Boston 19-10 for the game. Stenta made three saves while Boston goalkeeper Hraffn Davidsson finished with seven stops.

Binghamton concludes its three-game homestand with a 7 p.m. match on Wednesday against UMBC.

NOTES: Keith leads the Bearcats with five goals and 11 points ... Binghamton and Boston have now gone into overtime six times during their six-year rivalry ... the win over Boston marked the Bearcats' first overtime win since defeating Vermont 1-0 in the America East championship game last year ... in its two games at the Bearcats Sports Complex, Binghamton has averaged 1,822 fans.
