Binghamton men's soccer defeats previously unbeaten Wisconsin
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
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
