and St. Francis play to scoreless tie
LORETTO, Pa.--Visiting Binghamton (3-1-1) held an opponent scoreless for the fourth time in its first five games, but the team was unable to net a go-ahead goal in a scoreless tie with host St. Francis (0-4-1) in a non-conference game Saturday afternoon.
"We had a solid game," BU head coach Paul Marco said. "We weren't under much danger and we controlled the ball nicely in the midfield. St. Francis was very organized and they came at us hard. Their approach will help us in our conference games."
Binghamton outshot the Red Flash 10-8 and maintained a 6-3 edge in corner kicks. The Bearcats held their hosts to just three shots in the final 65 minutes of the game.
Sophomore goalkeeper Stefan Gonet (Renfrewshire, Scotland/Trinity) tallied five saves in posting his fourth shutout of the season. He made a crucial save midway through the second overtime period when he protected the net against a fastbreak shot from St. Francis.
The Bearcats return to action at home against Siena on September 17 at 4 p.m. The game will be the first of a five-game homestand for the Binghamton. The team does not play on the road again for nearly a month, with the next road contest being on October 11 against conference foe UMBC.
