- Sophomore forward Chris Banks (Westborough, Mass.) chipped home his second goal of the season to lift the University of New Hampshire men’s soccer team past Binghamton University, 1-0, on Wednesday evening on Bremner Field. With the win the Wildcats improve to 5-4-5, 2-1-1 in America East, while NSCAA Northeast regionally ranked No. 4 Binghamton drops to 11-2-0, 3-2-0 in the conference.
    After a scoreless first half of action, A.J. DuBois (Acworth, N.H.) played the ball far ahead of himself towards the left corner. Banks retrieved the ball and chipped a shot over Binghamton goalkeeper Jason Stenta, that sailed just inside the far post at 66:33.
    The Bearcats looked to their leading scorer, Cameron Keith, to get them on the board. Keith, who leads the league in scoring, tallied a team-high three shots, but his two on goal could not get past New Hampshire goalkeeper Mike Jenne (Vernon, N.Y). Jenne finished the game with four saves to earn his seventh shutout of the season. Stenta turned away two shots in the loss for the Bearcats.
    Binghamton, who outshot the Wildcats, 8-6, had an opportunity early on in the game with a rebound of a save, but Darren McAllister’s shot sailed high in the second attempt. The Bearcats also had the slight edge in corner kick, 4-3, including three consecutive corners with just over 10 minutes remaining in the game, but they were unable to capitalize with any shots on net during that time.
    The Wildcats return to action on Sunday, Oct. 28, when they host Hartford. Before the 1 p.m. kickoff, the Wildcats will honor seniors in their last home match.
