Binghamton men's soccer rallies for 4-3 win over Long Island University
DURHAM, N.H.-- Sophomore midfielder Cody Germain (Glenmont, N.Y.) netted a career-high two goals, including the game winner with just 2:32 left in regulation, leading Binghamton (1-2-1) to a 4-3 win over Long Island (1-3-0) in the final day of the Dartmouth adidas/Hypertherm Men's Soccer Classic on Sunday afternoon. The four goals represents the most the Bearcats have scored in a game since their 4-1 win over UMBC in the America East Conference semifinals on Nov. 9, 2005.
In addition to scoring twice, Germain assisted on another of the Binghamton goals. He now has a team high six points (two goals and two assists) this season.
Germain's winning goal came off of a corner kick from senior forward Peter Sgueglia (Schenectady, N.Y.). He positioned himself at the far post and headed the ball past Long Island goalkeeper Alex Fatovic.
In the opening 15 minutes of the game, Germain was instrumental in giving the Bearcats a 2-0 advantage. He scored an unassisted goal at the 7:00 mark and set up a breakaway goal by senior midfielder Bryan Arnault (Clay, N.Y.) at the 14:53 mark.
Long Island, however, struck back with three unaswered goals, two of which were assisted by John Crawley. At the 24:02 mark, Crawley's indirect kick was headed into the net by Andrew Zarick. After Michael Martin tied the game at 36:22, a corner kick by Crawley was headed in by Jukka Lehto at the 51:14 mark.
Things looked grim for Binghamton until a cross by Sgueglia was headed in by junior back Adam Chavez (Endicott, N.Y.) at the 78:27 mark. Less than 10 minutes later, Sgueglia and Germain teammed up for the goal that gave the Bearcats their first win of the year.
Binghamton heads to Florida International for a 7 p.m. game on Friday.
