Bearcats fall to Philadelphia in 2OT, 3-2

Vestal, N.Y. — Senior forward Andy Zayas (Philadelphia, Pa./North Catholic) slotted home the game-winning goal with 11:06 remaining in the second overtime, giving visiting Philadelphia (8-5, 4-0 Atlantic Soccer Conference) an improbable 3-2 win over Binghamton (0-10, 0-3 ASC). The Rams had tied the match with just one second remaining in regulation whjen Zayas flicked on a pass to a streaking Rob Miller (Hulmeville, Pa./Neshaminy), who drilled an 18-yard volley to the far corner. Zayas also scored Philadelphia’s opening goal in the first half.

Junior forward Mike Kaneris (East Meadow, N.Y./Kellenberg) had given the Bearcats a 2-1 lead with his third goal of the season. Kaneris swept up a loose ball in the box, and scored in the 85th minute, and it looked like BU would notch its first victory of the season, but the Rams pressed forward in the closing seconds, and sent the game into overtime.

Sophomore back Rodney Rigg (South Fallsburg, N.Y./Fallsburg) also scored for the Bearcats. His eight-yard goal off a loose ball tied the game in the 68th minute.

Philadelphia outshot BU, 22-13. The physical contest, played before 185 fans during Homecoming Weekend, resulted in 43 fouls and seven yellow cards.

Binghamton next plays Tuesday afternoon at University of Buffalo.
