Men's soccer defeats Robert Morris 1-0, improves to 3-0

Box Score

PITTSBURGH, Pa.- Junior back Ryan Tomko (Homer, N.Y.) broke a scoreless tie with five minutes remaining in regulation, leading Binghamton (3-0-0) to a 1-0 win over Robert Morris (3-1-0) in the opening round of the Pittsburgh Invitational Tournament. With the victory, the Bearcats are off to their best start since 1987. In addition, they have shut out their first three opponents for the first time since 2003.

Binghamton outshot Robert Morris 19-4, including 11-0 in a scoreless first half. Sophomore goalkeeper Jason Stenta (Binghamton, N.Y.) needed to only record one save in registering his 11th career solo shutout.

Tomko's was stationed 14 yards from the goal when he received a pass from junior midfielder Cody Germain (Glenmont, N.Y.). After receiving the pass, he fired the ball into the left corner of the net. It was Tomko's first career goal.

"We played very good soccer but did not have any goals to show for our effort until late," head coach Paul Marco said. "Compared to our match against Winthrop last week, we were better tonight. "Our backfield was terrific. (Senior back) Adam Chavez (Endicott, N.Y.) was the man of the match. He was a big reason we allowed so few shots. (Junior back) Liam Carson (Broxburn, Scotland) and (sophomore back) Kyle Kucharski (Maine, N.Y.) also played very well."

Binghamton battles the host Panthers on Sunday at 2:30 p.m. in the final round of the Pittsburgh Invitational Tournament.
