Binghamton men's soccer loses 1-0 at Maine, will take No. 3 seed into upcoming America East Tournament
ORONO, Maine-- Jake Ostrov scored in the 28th minute, leading Maine (5-9-2, 2-5-1 AE) to a 1-0 win over visiting Binghamton (10-5-3, 5-3-0 AE) in an America East Conference men's soccer game Sunday afternoon. With the setback, the Bearcats settle for the No. 3 seed in the America East Tournament and will host No. 6 New Hampshire next Saturday. The winner heads to No. 2 Albany a week from Wednesday.
Once again, Binghamton significant outshot an opponent, ending the game with an 18-9 advantage. In addition, the Bearcats had an 18-2 advantage in corner kicks. In the end, however, the Bearcats continued to struggle with the final touch and were shut out for the second time in four games.
The Black Bears, meanwhile, took advantage of their opportunity midway through the first half. That was when Ostrov played a ball over Binghamton goalkeeper Jason Stenta in the 28th minute. Corey Sinclair was credited with the assist.
Binghamton's two-year run as the America East Conference regular season champion comes to an end. By virtue of their 2-0 win over Hartford yesterday coupled with Albany's 0-0 tie against Vermont today, Boston University locked up its first regular-season crown since 2004.
In the other half of the tournament bracket, No. 4 Vermont hosts No. 5 Hartford on Saturday. The winner heads to top-seeded Boston next Wednesday.
