men's soccer beats Hartford 2-1 in double overtime
scores 1:35 into final sudden-death period
VESTAL, N.Y.-- Senior forward Scott
Zobre scored 1:35 into the second sudden-death overtime period,
leading Binghamton (4-4-3, 2-0-1 AE) Hartford (3-7-0, 1-2-0 AE)
in an America East men's soccer game on Wednesday night at the
Bearcats Sports Complex. With the win, the Bearcats extend their
unbeaten streak to seven matches, having gone 4-0-3 in the process.
Zobre's heroics were set up by junior midfielder Ryan
Walter, who finished the night with a goal and an assist.
Walter headed the ball in towards the goal and Zobre smashed
it into the net.
"Our guys responded great in the overtime," head coach
Paul Marco said. "We didn't play well in the second half
but we were able to respond after that.
Walter started off the scoring in the 33rd minute when he received
a long pass from freshman midfielder Tommy
Moon. He then dribbled in 10 yards from the goal and fired
the ball into the lower-right corner of the net.
Hartford, however, got even when Patrick Boucher finished off
a cross from Liam Williams in the 70th minute. It was his team-high
third goal of the season.
Hartford outshot Binghamton 11-10 for the game.
The Bearcats travel to Albany on Saturday for a 2 p.m. game.
NOTES: Walter and Boucher were the America East Players
of the Game.
