Binghamton men's soccer drops regular season finale 2-1 at Hartwick

Box Score

ONEONTA, N.Y.-- Host Hartwick took advantage of an own goal late in the first half, en route to a 2-1 win over Binghamton in a non-conference men's soccer game on Tuesday evening at Elmore Field. The Bearcats must now regroup for their first round America East Conference Tournament game at home on Saturday against UMBC.

The Hawks grabbed a 1-0 lead in the 20th minute when Patrick Thompson finished off a cross from Konrad Anderson. In the 36th minute, however, came what would be the decisive play of the game. Simon Greatwich played the ball near the goal and a Bearcat defender inadvertently knocked it into the net.

In the 54th minute, the Bearcats got on the board when junior defender Kyle Manscuk headed in a serve from junior back Yusuf Yusuf. That would be, however, one of only three Binghamton shots during the second half of play.

Hartwick outshot Binghamton 19-7 for the game.

Kickoff against the Retrievers on Saturday at the Bearcats Sports Complex is scheduled for 7 p.m.

NOTE: Binghamton last allowed an own goal at Maine on Oct. 27, 2002 ... Manscuk now ranks second on the team with three goals.
