Binghamton men's soccer loses 1-0 at Syracuse

Box score

SYRACUSE, N.Y. -- Senior midfielder Richard Asante netted his second goal of the season, leading Syracuse (4-4) to a 1-0 win over Binghamton (2-5-3) in a non-conference soccer game on Wednesday night at the SU Soccer Stadium. The game marked the final non-conference contest of the year for the Bearcats.

Asante's decisive blast came at the 75:44 mark when he converted a shot from 25 yards out into the upper-left corner of the net. The goal, which was unassisted, marked the first goal allowed by Binghamton in nearly three games.

Binghamton's loss was made more frustrating because it outshot the host Orangemen 11-7 for the game. In the opening half alone, the Bearcats held a 6-2 edge in shots.

"We are very disappointed not to have gotten at least a point out of this game," head coach Paul Marco said. "I thought we more more content at times to keep possession of the ball on offense instead of attacking the goal more. Give Syracuse credit, (Asante) made a fantastic strike to get the goal. Still, with the energy we put into this match, we are very disappointed with the result."

Binghamton opens the America East portion of the schedule at Maine on Saturday at noon.
