Binghamton men's soccer defeats UMBC 3-1, moves to 4-1 in conference play

Box score

VESTAL, N.Y.--Senior forward Peter Sgueglia (Schenectady, N.Y.) scored a career-high two goals, powering Binghamton (6-6-3, 4-1-0 AE) to a 3-1 win at UMBC (4-8-3, 1-3-2 AE) in an America East Conference men's soccer game on Wednesday afternoon. With the victory, the Bearcats remain off to their best conference start since joining the America East prior to the 2002 season.

"I thought our guys played with a lot of maturity today," head coach Paul Marco said. "This was a big step for us to prepare for the (America East Conference) tournament. "

Binghamton was nursing a 1-0 lead late in the second half when Sgueglia netted a pair of unassisted goals in a span of 3:54. He converted a breakaway at the 77:33 mark and outfought a defender for the ball on another breakaway at the 81:26 mark.

Sgueglia now leads the Bearcats with four goals and 12 points. He has now scored three goals in the past two games.

"I said before the game that Peter would have to have a big game for us," Marco said. "He flew out there today and came up with two great goals."

Junior midfielder Matt Narode (Glenmont, N.Y.) broke open a scoreless game at the 57:44 mark when he converted a cross from senior midfielder Bryan Arnault (Clay, N.Y.). It was Narode's second goal of the season and Arnault's second assist in as many games.

UMBC denied Binghamton the shutout when David Feazell scored with 6:25 left in the second half.

The Bearcats outshot UMBC 13-5 and held a 9-1 advantage in corner kicks.

Binghamton hosts defending America East Conference champion Stony Brook on Saturday at 1 p.m. in a rematch of last season's championship game.

NOTES: Binghamton is 5-2-1 over the last eight games.
