No. 22 Binghamton men's soccer team defeats Canisius 3-0 to remain unbeaten
POUGHKEEPSIE, N.Y.--Senior forward Charles Darkwah (Toronto, Ontario/Bathulst Heights) had a goal and an assist, leading No. 22 Binghamton (2-0) to a 3-0 win over Canisius (0-2) in men's soccer action this evening at the University of Buffalo. With the win, the Bearcats are off to their best start since 1993.
"We are starting to do things during the game that we have been working on in training," head coach Paul Marco said. "What I liked about today's game is that even when we were up 2-0, we were still able to keep the flow of the game going in our direction."
Darkwah's goal just 9:03 into the contest was his third in the last two games and was assisted by sophomore midfielder Kyle Antos (Endicott, N.Y./Union-Endicott). Just 3:16 later, Darkwah assisted on a goal by sophomore midfielder Bryan Arnault (Clay, N.Y./Cicero North Syracuse), stretching the lead to 2-0. It was Arnault's second goal in as many games.
At the 68:23 mark, senior forward Stephen Bruce (Buckie, Scotland/Buckie Community) made it 3-0 on a goal that was assisted by junior midfielder Danilo (Sao Paulo, Brazil/The Interlagos School) and sophomore forward Joey Neilson (Boothwyn, Pa./Strath Haven). It was Bruce's first goal of the season.
Junior goalkeeper Stefan Gonet (Refrewshire, Scotland/Trinity) made three saves in recording his first shutout of the season and 17th of his career. The Bearcat backline of senior Mike Austin (Oneonta, N.Y./Oneonta) and juniors Graham Munro (Inverness, Scotland/Invergordon), Darius Ravangard (Utica, N.Y./New Hartford) and Ryan Pierce (Cobleskill, N.Y./Cobleskill-Richmondville) held the Golden Gophers to just eight shots during the game.
Binghamton will remain in Buffalo and take on the host Bulls at 1:30 on Monday.
"It's going to be a good game on Monday," Marco said. "They shut out Colgate 3-0 and are playing very well right now."
NOTE: Darkwah leads Binghamton with three goals, two assists and eight total points through two games this season. He now has 10 goals for his career.
