In their first home game since completing a season-long, six-game road trip, Binghamton (1-4-3) played to a 0-0 tie against Lehigh (4-1-1) in a non-conference men's soccer game on Tuesday afternoon at the West Gym Field. The deadlock is the Bearcats' second in the past three games.

Despite outshooting Lehigh 12-8, the Bearcats were unable to capitalize on any of their opportunties near the net. In goal, however, redshirt freshman Jason Stenta (Binghamton, NY) made three saves to secure the first solo shutout of his career.

"I thought we played well against a very good team," head coach Paul Marco said. "We would have rather gotten three points today instead of one (point). Still, today gives us something to build on heading into Saturday's game (against Hartwick)."

The scoreless deadlock is the Bearcats first since October 30, 2003, when they played to a 0-0 draw at Vermont. Binghamton also played to a 0-0 tie against New Hampshire in the first round of the 2004 America East Tournament, before winning the decisive shootout 3-2.

Binghamton returns to action on Saturday at the West Gym Field when it hosts Hartwick at 2 p.m.
