Binghamton men's soccer defeats UMBC 1-0 in overtime

Box Score

VESTAL, N.Y. -- Junior midfielder Justin Leskow (Endwell, N.Y.) scored with 1:13 left in the first sudden-death overtime, leading Binghamton (9-2-0, 2-0-0 AE) to a 1-0 overtime victory over UMBC (5-4-2, 1-1-0 AE) in an America East Conference men's soccer game on Wednesday night at the Bearcats Sports Complex. The Bearcats have now won four straight games, including two consecutive overtime decisions.

Junior back Barry Neville (Mearns Castle, Scotland) set up the game winner when he fired a pass to Leskow, who was stationed by the right goal post. Leskow then tipped the ball in the net for his second goal of the season.

"Our guys played well tonight against a very good UMBC team," head coach Paul Marco said. "It was a tough game for us but a fantastic win."

Binghamton outshot UMBC 19-8 but junior goalkeeper Steve King made six saves to send the game into overtime. Sophomore goalkeeper Jason Stenta (Binghamton, N.Y.) recorded three saves to notch his seventh solo shutout of the season.

Binghamton continues conference play with a 6 p.m. game at Hartford on Saturday.

NOTES: Leskow continues to rank second on the team with seven total points (two goals, three assists) ... Binghamton has outscored its opponents 8-2 during its current winning streak.
