Gonet, men's soccer team rank among the top five in the nation defensively

The NCAA has come out with its men's soccer statistics including all games played through October 26, and the Binghamton men's soccer team is ranked among the top five in two categories. Sophomore goalkeeper Stefan Gonet (Refrewshire, Scotland/Trinity) currently ranks fifth in the nation among Division I teams with an 0.409 goals against average (GAA). As a team, Binghamton has a shutout percentage of 0.75, which ranks second in the nation behind only Old Dominion (0.79).

In addition to Gonet, the backline of seniors Pat Skinner (Conklin, N.Y./ Susquehanna Valley) and James Clancy (Walden, N.Y./ Pine Bush), junior Ross Campbell (Aberdeenshire, Scotland/Westhill) and sophomores Darius Ravangard (Utica, N.Y./ New Hartford) and Graham Munro (Inverness, Scotland/ Invergordon) has been largely responsible for the team's defensive accomplishments.

"Our entire team has played a part in our defense this year," head coach Paul Marco said. "Whenever we don’t have the ball, there are 11 guys ready to get it back.”

Binghamton has already broken two school records during its 9-2-5 season. As a team, the Bearcats 12 shutouts breaks the record set by the 1984 team and tied by the 1986 team. Gonet's 12.0 shutouts this season breaks the record of 10.0 set by Adam Napell in 1987.

Currently, Binghamton is on a nine-game unbeaten streak, having gone 5-0-4 in the process.

Binghamton travels to Vermont for a 2 p.m. game on Wednesday.
