Men’s soccer team wraps up season
Binghamton’s men’s soccer team lost a penalty kick shootout 4-2 as host Stony Brook took the America East Conference champ-ionship Nov.12. The game was deadlocked 1-1 at the end of two sudden-death overtimes.
The Bearcats (12-4-5) were just 3:15 away from their first confer-ence title since 2003 when the Seawolves (12-4-4) rallied to deadlock the game. Binghamton’s last two appearances in the America East finals were also decided in penalty kick shootouts.
The Bearcats are just the third team in America East Conference history to advance to three con-secutive tournament finals. Boston went five times in a row (1993-97) and Northeastern went to the 2001-03 title games. The confer-ence tournament started in 1989.
Senior back Graham Munro, senior midfielder Danilo and junior forward Joey Neilson were named to the conference All-Tournament team.
