No. 22 Binghamton ties Buffalo 1-1, wins Buffalo Men's Soccer Fall Classic
BUFFALO, N.Y.--Sophomore midfielder Bryan Arnault (Clay, N.Y./Cicero North Syracuse) scored his third goal in as many games, leading No. 22 Binghamton (2-0-1) to a 1-1 tie against host Buffalo (2-0-1) in the final round of the Buffalo Men's Soccer Fall Classic. The Bearcats were named the team champion by virtue of the best goal differential during the tournament and Arnault was named the Offensive Most Valuable Player.
Against Buffalo, Arnault broke a scoreless tie at the 28:22 mark on an unassisted breakaway goal. The Bulls, however, came back to tie the game on a shot from 40 yards out at 59:30. Binghamton outshot Buffalo 11-9 and led in corner kicks 12-4 but were unable to come up with the game winner.
"This was a game where we did not get the goals we created," head coach Paul Marco said. "Buffalo is a good team but we had plenty of opportunities, especially on corner kicks, to score more than we did."
Also named to to all-tournament team along with Arnault were senior forward Charles Darkwah (Toronto, Ontario/Bathulst Heights), junior midfielder Danilo (Sao Paulo, Brazil/The Interlagos School) and junior back Graham Munro (Inverness, Scotland/Invergordon).
Up next for Binghamton is Wednesday's home opener against undefeated St. Bonaventure at 4 p.m. at West Gym Field.
"Wednesday is going to be a great game," head coach Paul Marco said. "St. Bonaventure is going to be one of the best teams we'll face all year."
NOTE: Dating back to last season, Binghamton has now gone 25 consecutive games without allowing a first-half goal ... the next NSCAA/adidas poll will be released on Tuesday afternoon.
