Binghamton men's soccer defeats Stony Brook 1-0, clinches at least a No. 4 seed in upcoming America East Conference Tournament

Box score

VESTAL, N.Y.-- Sophomore back Liam Carson (Broxburn, Scotland) scored with 8:59 remaining in the second half, leading Binghamton (7-6-1, 5-1-0 AE) to a 1-0 win over Stony Brook (5-11-0, 2-4-0 AE) in an America East Conference men's soccer game on Saturday at a blustery West Gym Field. With the victory, the Bearcats lock up at least fourth place in the conference with still two regular season games left to play.

Binghamton can clinch the top spot in the conference tournament with wins at Albany on Wednesday and against Vermont next Saturday. The Bearcats can clinch at least a No. 2 seed, as well as the accompanying first-round bye, with at least one win this coming week.

Against the Seawolves, Carson found the back of the net on a scramble in front of the goal. It was his first goal of the season.

Defensively, redshirt freshman Jason Stenta (Binghamton, N.Y.) recorded his fifth solo shutout of the season. He recorded five saves, including a pair from close range in the second half. Stenta's goals against average is now 0.80.

The Bearcats outshot the Seawolves 11-7. In the second half alone, the Bearcats held a 7-2 edge.

"I thought we played tentative in the first half," head coach Paul Marco said. "But I thought we played committed in the second half. Jason made two fantastic saves for us."

Binghamton heads to Albany for a 3 p.m. game on Wednesday.
