Box score

ORONO, Maine-- Senior midfielder Bryan Arnault (Clay, N.Y.) and junior back Adam Chavez (Endicott, N.Y.) each netted second-half goals, leading Binghamton (3-5-3, 1-0-0 AE) to a 2-1 win at Maine (0-9-0, 0-1-0 AE) in an America East Conference game on Saturday afternoon. The victory is the Bearcats' second in their last three games.

"We are playing better soccer these past few weeks and are glad to get the win today," head coach Paul Marco said. "We need to keep working on some things before Wednesday's game (against New Hampshire) but we got two world-class goals today."

Arnault broke a scoreless tie at the 70:19 mark with his second goal of the season. It was a 22-yard blast that was assisted by junior midfielder Matt Narode (Glenmont, N.Y.).

The goal by Chavez, which came at the 81:53 mark, was an 18-yard strike and was assisted by sophomore back Barry Neville (Mearns Castle, Scotland). Chavez now also has a pair of goals this season.

The Black Bears broke the shutout with 18 seconds remaining on a goal by Cooper Friend.

Binghamton outshot Maine 21-6.

The Bearcats return home on Wednesday for a 4 p.m. game against New Hampshire.
