Sgueglia named America East Conference Men's Soccer Player of the Week

Conference Release

VESTAL, N.Y.--Senior forward Peter Sgueglia (Schenectady, N.Y.) has been named the America East Conference Men's Soccer Player of the Week. It marks the first time in his career that he has earned the conference's weekly accolade.

Sgueglia scored a career-high two goals, powering Binghamton (7-6-3, 5-1-0 AE) to a 3-1 win at UMBC last Wednesday. He now leads the Bearcats with four goals and 12 points. In the past three games, all Binghamton wins, he has scored three times.

"This is a great award for Peter," head coach Paul Marco said. "He is really starting to come through for us. These next two games are going to be big for him."

Binghamton is tied for second place in the America East with Albany (15 points). The Bearcats travel to Albany on Wednesday at 3 p.m. and host first-place Vermont (16 points) at 1 p.m. on Saturday. Should Bingamton sweep both games, it will earn the No. 1 seed in the upcoming America East Tournament.

Sgueglia is the second Bearcat to have earned America East Player of the Week honors this season. Redshirt freshman goalkeeper Jason Stenta (Binghamton, N.Y.) was tabbed on Sept. 17.
