Binghamton men's soccer defeats UMBC 4-0
Bearcats claim No. 4 seed for upcoming AE tournament

Box Score

VESTAL, N.Y.-- Freshman Tyler Bailey had a goal and an assist to help lead Binghamton (9-7-1, 4-3-0 AE) to a 4-0 win over UMBC (12-5-0, 3-4-0 AE) in their America East regular season finale on Saturday night at the Bearcats Sports Complex.

With the win, the Bearcats claim the fourth seed for the upcoming America East Tournament and will host fifth-seeded UMBC next Saturday.

All four goals were scored by freshman for Binghamton.

"UMBC is a good team," head coach Paul Marco said. "They know how to score goals. Our young guys were very good tonight and Jason Stenta and our backs played very well."

Freshman midfielder Greg Mathers opened the scoring in the sixth minute when he dribbled past two defenders from the left side of the box and ripped a shot to the right side of the net.

After a 1-0 first half, Binghamton went on a scoring barrage in the second, netting three goals in the frame.

Freshman forward Jake Keegan took a Bailey pass in the box and buried it in the 62nd minute for his team-leading sixth goal of the season. Later, freshman Matt Kristek scored off an assist from freshman Adam Whitehead in the 83rd minute.

Bailey finished off the scoring for Binghamton 87th minute when he netted a chip shot off the feed from sophomore Santigui Tounkara.

This was the second time this season that Binghamton scored four goals, the first being in a 4-0 win over Niagara on September 27.

UMBC held a 19-11 advantage in shots. Senior goalkeeper Jason Stenta made seven saves for his 36th career shutout.

Binghamton will play at Hartwick in their final regular season game of the season on Tuesday before the rematch with UMBC next weekend.
