No. 19 Binghamton defeats St. Joseph's 3-0, remains undefeated at 4-0-2
PHILADELPHIA, PA.--Sophomore midfielder Bryan Arnault (Clay, N.Y.) and senior forward Charles Darkwah (Toronto, Ontario) each scored their fifth goal of the season, leading No. 19 Binghamton (4-0-2) to a 3-0 win in the second and final day of the Philadelphia Soccer Classic on Sunday afternoon. With the win, Binghamton tied Monmouth for the team title by going 2-0 during the weekend.
Arnault, who scored in both games this weekend, was named the tournament's MVP. It marked the second time in as many weeks that he has received a top honor of a tournament. Last weekend, Arnault was named the Most Outstanding Offensive Player of the Buffalo Fall Classic.
"This was a great weekend for us," head coach Paul Marco said. "To go 2-0 and outscore our opponents 6-1 was good for our team. Even though there is room for improvement, things are starting to come together."
After falling behind in its two most recent games, the Bearcats got on the board first as redshirt sophomore Kyle Antos (Endicott, N.Y.) tipped in a shot by junior back Graham Munro (Inverness, Scotland) 21:17 into the contest. It was his second goal of the weekend.
Darkwah extended the lead to 2-0 on an unassisted goal at 62:45 while Arnault's goal, which came at 75:04, was assisted by freshman midfielder Adam Chavez (Endicott,N.Y.). Junior goalkeeper Stefan Gonet (Refrewshire, Scotland) and redshirt sophomore Phil Grommet (Teaneck, N.J.) combined to record the Bearcats' second shutout of the season.
Binghamton travels to Siena on Wednesday for a 4 p.m. game.
NOTE: Munro, Darkwah and junior midfielder Danilo (Sao Paulo, Brazil) joined Arnault on the Philadelphia Soccer Classic All-Tournament Team ... Darkwah now has 12 career goals for Binghamton.
