Men's soccer drops 1-0 overtime heartbreaker to Richmond
Host Spiders scored in 100th minute to halt BU's five-game win streak

Box Score

RICHMOND, Va. -- The Binghamton men's soccer team dropped a heart-breaking, 1-0 overtime decision to Richmond in its first game of the Nike Challenge Cup Friday evening at First Market Stadium. The host Spiders headed home a rebound into the back of the net in the 100th minute to claim the win.

The Bearcats and the Spiders played 99:59 of scoreless soccer before Richmond sophomore Jordan Evans blasted a shot from the left side that hit the crossbar and bounced toward the right post, where Jordan Russell was there to head it past BU sophomore goalkeeper Jason Stenta (Binghamton, N.Y.) for the game-winner with one second remaining in the first overtime period. Richmond's goal ended the Bearcats' streak of 561 minutes without allowing a score, dating back to last season.

Stenta finished three saves on the day, while the Bearcats tallied 15 shots. Richmond goalkeeper Eric Sciocchetti compiled six saves of his own, as the Spiders racked-up 12 shots.

Binghamton faces Duquesne in the final matchup of the tournament at 5:30 p.m. on Saturday.

Game Notes: The 1970 squad holds the school record for the best start (6-0) while the 1987 team shut out a program-best six opponents to start the season.
