Game File

VESTAL, N.Y.-- Sophomore forward Jake Keegan scored for the second straight game as Binghamton (2-4-3, 0-0-1 AE) managed a 1-1 tie at UMBC (4-3-1, 0-0-1 AE) in an America East men's soccer game on Saturday afternoon. The tie extended the Bearcats' unbeaten streak to five games (2-0-3), their longest such streak since September 2008.

"We are defintely pleased that we came out with a point even though we had chances for a win," head coach Paul Marco said. "UMBC returned nearly all of their starters from last year and even though we are very young, we didn't give up today."

After 75 minutes of scoreless action, UMBC broke through when Pete Caringi finished off a cross. Levi Houapeu and Andrew Bulls were credited with the assist.

Keegan, however, responded with a eight-yard shot six minutes later that deadlocked the game at 1-1. Junior midfielder Ryan Walter got the lone assist.

UMBC had the overall edge in shots (17-15) while Binghamton had the advantage in shot on goal (10-7).

Redshirt freshman goalkeeper Chris Hayen made six saves.

Binghamton hosts Vermont on Saturday at 7 p.m.
