men's soccer loses 2-1 in overtime to Stony Brook
net game winner with 33 seconds left in first sudden-death period
VESTAL, N.Y.-- Raphael Abreu netted his second goal of the game
with 33 seconds left in the first sudden-death overtime period,
lifting Stony Brook (8-5-3, 2-1-2 AE) to a 2-1 win over Binghamton
(4-5-4, 2-1-2 AE) in an America East men's soccer game on Saturday
night at the Bearcats Sports Complex. The loss snaps the Bearcats'
eight-game unbeaten streak.
Abreu, who now has five goals on the season, smashed home a rebound
into the upper right-hand corner of the net. The Seawolves had
taken a free kick moments earlier and Abreu made the most of
the goalmouth scramble.
Binghamton got on the board first in the 34th minute as sophomore
back Austin Hughes headed in his first career goal off a free
kick by junior midfielder Ryan Walter. The free kick was awarded
after Kyle McTurk of Stony Brook was given a yellow card.
It took Abreu just under four minutes to tie the game as he slid
a shot past Binghamton goalkeeper Chris Hayen. Wilber Bonilla
and Kyle Schlessinger were credited with the assists.
Binghamton outshot Stony Brook 12-11 for the game. In the first
half, the Bearcats held a 9-3 advantage but were outshot 8-3
the rest of the game.
Binghamton heads to Boston on Wednesday for a 7 p.m. match.
