Binghamton men's soccer loses 2-0 to Ivy League champion Dartmouth
HANOVER, N.H. - Mike Ordonez converted a penalty kick just 4:57 into the game and Daniel Keat added an insurance goal with 1:04 remaining, leading Dartmouth (1-0) to a 2-0 win over visiting Binghamton (0-3-1) in the opening round of the adidas/Hypertherm Classic on Friday afternoon. The Big Green, which is receiving votes in the NSCAA/adidas Top 25 Poll, won the Ivy League title last season and advanced to the NCAA Tournament.
For Binghamton, Friday's game marked the third straight unbeaten or ranked opponent it has faced over the past six days. The Bearcats were outshot by only 12-11 but faced an uphill battle from the moment Ordonez made his penalty kick.
In the last few minutes of the game, Binghamton used just two defenders in the hope of scoring the tying goal. Keat, however, took advantage of the situation as he took a cross from Peter Savidis and fired in the net from the back post.
"I thought a couple of our guys played inspired today," head coach Paul Marco said. "But we are still not playing as well as we are capable of. I will expect to see a response at training tomorrow."
Binghamton squares off against Long Island on Sunday at 12:30 p.m in the final round of the adidas/Hypertherm Classic.
