Binghamton soccer teams to face Colgate in preseason doubleheader on Friday

Directions to the David L. Emerson Soccer Farm

VESTAL, N.Y. -The Binghamton University men's and women's soccer teams will take part in the Third Annual Nice 'N Easy/ Coca Cola Collegiate Soccer Preview on Friday afternoon with a doubleheader against Colgate. The women's game starts at 3:45 p.m. while the men kick off at 5:30 p.m. Both contests will take place at the David L. Emerson Soccer Farm in Oxford, N.Y.

This marks the second consecutive season that the men's team has competed in the Nice 'N Easy/ Coca Cola Collegiate Soccer Preview. Last year, the Bearcats tied Penn State 1-1. The women's team is making its first-ever appearance in the event.

Both squads returned to campus this past week for the start of preseason training. On the men's side, head coach Paul Marco welcomed back eight starters from last season's team that went 12-3-7, captured the America East Conference Championship and advanced to the second round of the NCAA Tournament. Head women's coach Jeff Leightman has nine returning starters from a squad that went 9-8-2 in 2003.

PLEASE NOTE: The America East Conference preseason polls for both men's and women's soccer will be released on Tuesday.
