Narode named to College Soccer News National Team of the Week

Complete Team

VESTAL, N.Y.-- Sophomore back Matt Narode (Glenmont, N.Y./Bethlehem Central) has been named to the College Soccer News National Team of the Week for Sept. 18-24. He earns the honor for his significant role in the Bearcats' two wins last week.

After scoring a pair of goals in Binghamton's 3-0 win over Oneonta last Tuesday, Narode scored a key goal in the squad's 3-2 come-from-behind win at Vermont on Saturday. With 17:14 remaining in regulation, he tied the game at 2-2 when he headed in a cross.

"Matt is having a great season," head coach Paul Marco. "He has become a quicker and mentally tougher player with the ball. He has been executing great inside the box and has been making great decisions."

Narode leads the Bearcats with five goals and 10 total points. He becomes the first Binghamton player to named to the College Soccer News National Team of the Week since Graham Munro during the 2003 season.

Binghamton (7-1-1, 1-0 AE) is currently ranked No. 25 in the nation by College Soccer News and No. 21 in the NSCAA/adidas Top 25 Poll. The Bearcats head to Bucknell for a 7 p.m. game on Wednesday.
