play to 1-1 draw with Oneonta
VESTAL, N.Y. - Binghamton (6-2-2) battled visiting Oneonta (6-2-2) to a 1-1 overtime draw in a men's soccer game Tuesday afternoon on West Gym field. The teams traded goal-resulting defensive miscues before battling through 20 minutes of scoreless overtime.
The Bearcats scored in the 28th minute when junior striker Charles Darkwah (Toronto, Ontario) was the recipient of a miscue in Oneonta's penalty box. Red Dragons keeper Jack Potter (Liverpool, England) attempted to kick away a loose ball and blasted it off Darkwah back into his own net. The goal was Darkwah's fifth tally in his last four games.
Oneonta evened the score in the 63rd minute on another defensive misplay. Binghamton keeper Stefan Gonet (Refrewshire, Scotland) lost a cross in the sun, and Red Dragons senior midfielder Rodney Gunter (Brooklyn, N.Y.) scooped up the loose ball and converted from short range.
The game was slowed by 39 fouls - 26 of them whistled on the host Bearcats.
"We knew going in it was going to be a war," BU head coach Paul Marco said. "At the end of the day we had several opportunties to win the game, but I thought it was a just result. They're a good side."
Three of the last four contests between the two SUNY schools have been decided by one goal, including Binghamton's 1-0 win last fall.
The Bearcats now enter the remainder of the conference play, with the team's final eight games against America East foes. Binghamton will travel to Baltimore to face UMBC on October 8.
