men's soccer rallies for 4-2 win at Niagara
extend unbeaten streak to four games
VESTAL, N.Y.-- Redshirt freshman midfielder Chris
Hobbs had a goal and an assist, powering Binghamton (2-4-2)
to a 4-2 win at Niagara in men's soccer action on Wednesday night.
With the victory, the Bearcats have now gone 2-0-2 in their last
Binghamton rallied from an early 2-0 deficit, marking the first
time during its nine-year NCAA Division I era that it has won
a game after being down by more than one goal. In addition, the
four goals represents the Bearcats' highest single-game total
since beating UMBC 4-0 on Oct. 31, 2009.
Niagara scored twice in a span of 3:23 to take a 2-0 in the 26th
minute. Hobbs started Binghamton's comeback less than two minutes
later when he assisted on sophomore forward Jake
Keegan's first goal of the season. In the 31st minute, Hobbs
took maters into his own hands as he netted an unassisted goal
to tie the game at 2-2.
With just under two minutes left in the first half, sophomore
Whitehead put the Bearcats ahead with an 18-yard shot to
the upper-left corner of the net. Redshirt freshman back Tommy
Klim was credited with the assist.
In the 62nd minute, freshman midfielder Tommy
Moon put the Bearcats ahead to stay with a shot that slid
just inside the post. Fellow freshman Luke
Halberg was credited with the assist.
"Outside of that three-minute span in the first half, I
thought our guys played quite well tonight," head coach
Paul Marco. "We got four fantastic goals. It was hard to
tell which goals were better."
Binghamton outshot Niagara 22-12 for the game. Redshirt freshman
Hayen made four saves in the winning effort.
Binghamton heads to UMBC on Saturday at 1 p.m. in its first game
of the America East Conference portion of its schedule.
