Binghamton men's soccer defeats Lafayette 2-1
MORGANTOWN, W.V.-- Senior back Liam Carson and sophomore forward Scott Zobre each netted first-half goals, leading Binghamton (1-1-0) to a 2-1 win over Lafayette (1-1-0) in the final day of the West Virginia Tournament. After Friday's tough loss to Duquesne, the Bearcats were able to rebound against a team that defeated the host Mountaineers in the other first-round game.
"I though today was an outstanding performance by our guys," head coach Paul Marco said. "Lafayette was very good on Friday (against West Virginia) and we needed to get a response out of our guys. That's exactly what we got."
Carson has scored in each of the Bearcats' games this season off of corner kicks. In the 23rd minute against Lafayette, he headed in a corner kick from senior midfielder Darren McAllister to give Binghamton a 1-0 edge.
Zobre, meanwhile, subbed into the game in the 33rd minute and needed just seven minutes to make his mark in the game. He fired a shot from outside of the box into the net in the 40th, extending the lead to 2-0.
After being outshot 7-6 in the first half, the Leopards turned up the tempo in the second half and wound up outshooting Binghamton 14-9 for the game. Their goal, however, came with three seconds left in the game and was credited as an "own goal" against the Binghamton defense.
Binghamton takes part in the Colgate Invitational next weekend. On Friday, the Bearcats square off against the host Red Raiders at 7 p.m.
