Binghamton men's soccer defeats previously unbeaten Wisconsin 1-0

[box score...]

MILWAUKEE, Wisc.-- Freshman foward Andy Tiedt scored his first collegiate goal, leading Binghamton (3-1-2) to a 1-0 win over previously unbeaten Wisconsin (4-1-1) in the final round of the Wisconsin-Milwaukee Tournament on Sunday afternoon. The win extends the Bearcats' unbeaten streak to five games and also marks their third consecutive shutout.

"The guys were fantastic today," head coach Paul Marco said. "With each game and each training session that goes by, we do a little bit better. Our defense did well today against a couple of very good front runners."

Tiedt's goal, which came in the 36th minute, was set up by junior back Kyle Kucharski, who delivered a pass that bounced over the goalkeeper. From there, yards out, Tiedt slid the pass from Keith into the net.

Binghamton outshot Wisconsin 16-11 for the game. In the decisive first half, the Bearcats held a 9-5 advantage.

Junior goalkeeper Jason Stenta made three saves to record his third shutout of the season and the 23nd of his career.

Up next for Binghamton is its home opener against Bucknell on Friday at 7 p.m. at the Bearcats Sports Complex.

PLEASE NOTE: Wisconsin entered the game receiving votes in the NSCAA/adidas Top 25 Poll.
