Binghamton men's soccer defeats Stony Brook 1-0

[box score...]

VESTAL, N.Y.-- Senior Ryan Tomko netted a goal late in the first half to led Binghamton (10-4-3, 5-2-0 AE) past Stony Brook (2-12-4, 0-4-3 AE) 1-0 in an America East Conference men's soccer game on Wednesday evening at the Bearcats Sports Complex. The victory marked the Bearcats fourth consecutive home shutout victory.

With one conference game remaining, Binghamton is still in the mix to receive one of the top two seeds and a first round bye in the conference tournament.

"I felt our guys did well to close out the game tonight," head coach Paul Marco said. "You know Stony Brook is still in the match when it is only a 1-0 game."

Senior Darren McAllister fired a corner kick into the box in the 40th minute that was reflected off senior Mark Wood and stayed up in the air long enough for Tomko to head it in past the goalkeeper.

Junior goalkeeper Jason Stenta made three saves to push his school record total of career shutouts to 30.

The Bearcats out shot the Seawolves 21-8.

Binghamton will play their final conference match at Maine on Sunday at 1 p.m.

Notes: Coming into tonight's contest, Stenta was ranked sixth in the nation in save percentage and 11th in goals against average. As a team, Binghamton was ranked seventh in the NCAA in total defense ... this was the third consecutive year the Bearcats have not lost a regular season conference home game ... since October 11, 2005 the Bearcats are 18-0-5 in regular season home games.
