Binghamton men's soccer defeats Maine 5-0

Box Score

VESTAL, N.Y. -- Sophomore forward Cameron Keith (Aberdeenshire, Scotland) recorded his second hat trick of the season, powering Binghamton (11-3-0, 3-1-0 AE) to a 5-0 win over Maine (3-10-1, 1-3-1 AE) in an America East Conference men's soccer game on Saturday night at the Bearcats Sports Complex. The victory is the Bearcats' sixth in their past seven games.

The five-goal game represents the Bearcats' highest scoring output since they defeated Philadelphia College 6-0 on Sept. 27, 2003 at the old West Gym Field. Keith, meanwhile, recorded his third multiple-goal game of the season and now leads the America East with nine goals and 19 total points.

Senior back Adam Chavez (Endicott, N.Y.) added a goal and an assist while junior back Barry Neville (Mearns Castle, Scotland) tallied a game-high two assists.

Binghamton came out smoking in the first half, scoring three goals in a span of 1:37 to go up 3-0 at the 8:55 mark of the game. It marked the quickest three-goal spurt in program history since the Bearcats moved up to the NCAA Division I level in 2001.

Senior back Adam Chavez (Endicott, N.Y.) got things started when he headed in a cross from junior back Barry Neville (Mearns Castle, Scotland) at the 7:18 mark. Just 36 seconds later, Keith deflected a cross from senior midfielder Matt Narode (Glenmont, N.Y.) to make it 2-0. At the 8:55 mark, junior midfielder Justin Leskow (Endwell, N.Y.) got a rebound off the cross bar and knocked it in the net for his third goal of the season.

Keith increased the lead to 4-0 at the 55:17 mark of the game when he took a cross from freshman midfielder Yusuf Yusuf (Chestnut Ridge, N.Y.) and used a quick touch to get the ball in the net. Neville was also credited with an assist. At the 66:34 mark, Keith finished the scoring by heading in a cross from Chavez.

Binghamton outshot Maine 19-4, including 15-1 in the decisive first half.

The Bearcats head to New Hampshire for a 7 p.m. game on Wednesday.
