Bearcats play to 2-2 tie against Siena

Box Score

Loudonville, N.Y. -- Clutch second-half goals by Graham Munro (Inverness, Scotland) and Stephen Bruce (Buckie, Scotland) helped the Binghamton University Bearcats (1-4-1) to a 2-2 tie against the Siena Saints (0-1-1) in a non-conference road contest on Tuesday afternoon.

“It was a very intense game,” said head coach Paul Marco. “Despite trailing twice, we responded well and earned the tie.”

The Saints struck first in the game, scoring an unassisted goal in the 23rd minute and taking a 1-0 lead into the half. Less than three minutes into the second half, however, Munro knocked in a penalty kick and evened the game at 1-1. After Siena again took the lead at the 62:38 mark, Bruce fired a rebound past the keeper and into the net, closing the scoring in the 75th minute.

Binghamton may have had a chance to win the game, but a potential third goal was waived off when officials ruled that advances could not be played. Instead, a yellow card was issued to Siena and the Bearcats were awarded a free kick.

“We had several excellent scoring chances in the game,” said Marco. “We hit the crossbar a couple of times and the keeper’s face on one occasion.”

The Bearcats held a 14-9 shot advantage for the game, including a 10-5 margin after halftime. Ian Wendel (Sparta, N.J.) played the entire game in goal, recording four saves.

The 14 shots were a season high for Binghamton, which also broke out of a scoring drought with the two goals. The Bearcats had been held to just three goals in their first five contests.

“We are very pleased with our effort today, and we are looking forward to taking on Buffalo this weekend,” Marco said.

The Bearcats entertain Buffalo at West Gym Field on Sunday at 1 p.m.
