Game File

VESTAL, N.Y.-- Junior midfielder Ryan Walter scored his first goal of the season, leading Binghamton (3-4-3, 1-0-1 AE) to a 1-0 win over Vermont (6-4-3, 1-1-0 AE) in an America East men's soccer game before 2,240 fans at the Bearcats Sports Complex on Saturday night. With the win, the Bearcats are now 3-0-3 in their last matches.

Walter found himself in the right place at the right time in the 14th minute of the game. Sophomore midfielder Adam Whitehead fired a long blast that Vermont goalkeeper Xan Rouselle was unable to handle. The ball came to Walter, who was stationed at the mouth of the goal. He then knocked it into the net.

"Tonight was a great win in a very competitive match," head coach Paul Marco said. "I thought our guys were great tonight."

Rouselle made two impressive saves in the second half, keeping the Catamounts within striking distance. At the other end, redshirt freshman goalkeeper Chris Hayen made three saves to record his third solo shutout of the season.

Binghamton outshot Vermont 12-7 for the game.

The Bearcats host Hartford on Wednesday at 7 p.m.

NOTES: Walter and Rousseau were named the America East Players of the Game ... the attendance was the third-largest in the four year history of the Bearcats Sports Complex ... Walter now has a goal and an assist in his last two games.
