Tie extends men’s soccer team’s streakTweet
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 Oct. 2.
The tie extended the Bearcats’ unbeaten streak to five games (2-0-3), their longest such streak since September 2008.
“We are definitely 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. 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.
Redshirt freshman goalkeeper Chris Hayen made six saves.
