[box score...]

VESTAL, N.Y.- Freshman forward Andy Tiedt had a goal and an assist, leading Binghamton (4-1-2) to a 3-1 win over Bucknell (3-2-2) in non-conference men's soccer action Friday evening at the Bearcats Sports Complex. With the victory, the Bearcats stretched their unbeaten streak to six games.

Tiedt now has two goals and an assist in his last three games. In addition, junior back Kyle Kucharski recorded a pair of assists, giving him three tallies in the past two games.

The Bearcats struck first when Tiedt headed in a cross from Kucharski in the 18th minute. In the 37th minute, Kucharski and Tiedt set up junior forward Cameron Keith, who fired the ball in from close range.

Bucknell got back in the game when Conor O'Brien headed in a free kick by Matt Hittson in the 53rd minute. In the 75th minute, however, senior midfielder Ryan Tomko converted a 25-yard blast into the net. Senior midfielder Justin Leskow was credited with the assist.

"The guys came out great tonight and it was a very good first half by our team," head coach Paul Marco said. "Bucknell made some adjustments and responded quite well but we were able to get that third goal late in the game."

Binghamton faces Hartwick on Tuesday at 7 p.m. at the Bearcats Sports Complex.
