Binghamton men's soccer wins 2-1 at Vermont

Box Score

BURLINGTON, VT.-- Redshirt freshman forward Matt Kristek scored with 21 seconds remaining in regulation, leading Binghamton (8-6-1, 3-2-0 AE) to a 2-1 win over Vermont (1-9-5, 1-3-2 AE) in an America East men's soccer game on Saturday afternoon at Centennial Field. With the victory, the Bearcats clinch their seventh consecutive berth in the conference tournament, which begins in two weeks.

"This was a fantastic win for our team," head coach Paul Marco said. "Give Vermont credit, they had to win this game and gave us all we could handle. We are very happy to get this important road win."

With time running out in regulation, junior midfielder Scott Zobre got free down the sidelines. He got the nearest Vermont defender to come charging forward and proceeded to pass the ball to a wide-open Kristek who then slid the ball inside the far post.

Zobre finished the game with a career-high two assists. He set up the first goal when his shot on goal bounced back to senior back Liam Carson who fired the ball into the net at the 26:59 mark of the game.

The host Catamounts turned up the offensive pressure in the second half and tied the game at 1-1 when Kyle Luetkehans headed in a cross at the 65:54 mark. That set the stage for Kristek's heroics less than 25 minutes later.

Vermont outshot Binghamton 11-9 for the game.

Up next for Binghamton is a Wednesday game at 2:30 p.m. at New Hampshire. The Wildcats clinched the top seed in the America East Tournament on Saturday afternoon with a 1-1 tie against Stony Brook
