University of Albany Men's Soccer Plays Binghamton to 1-1 Double-Overtime Tie - Sander Anker Scores Goal - UAlbany Sports 2010

Albany, N.Y. - Sander Anker netted his first goal of the season in the early minutes as UAlbany and Binghamton played to a 1-1 double-overtime tie in an America East Conference men's soccer match on Saturday, Oct. 16 at Varsity Field.

Anker put the Great Danes on the board quickly in the sixth minute when he collected a cross from Bo Jelovac and blasted a shot to the far post from six yards away. After Ryan Walter and Adam Whitehead each rifled shots that hit off the post, the Bearcats were able to break through and tie the match just minutes before the recess on a free kick converted by Whitehead from 25 yards out. UAlbany captain Shaun Kane had the best chance for either side to net the go-ahead marker the rest of the way, but his shot following a free kick in the 70th minute sailed just wide left of the goal.

UAlbany's Adrian Foncette made a season-high 10 saves on 23 chances, while Chris Hayen turned away two of the nine shots he faced for Binghamton (4-4-4, AE 2-0-2). The Bearcats outshot the Great Danes, 23-9, and had a slim 4-3 advantage in corner kicks.

UAlbany (4-8-1, AE 0-3-1) wraps up its four-match homestand when it hosts Vermont on Saturday, Oct. 23 at 2 p.m. Seniors David Burke, Andrew Fojanesi, Milos Jankovic, Bo Jelovac, Darko Knezevic, Ian Peach, Kane and Anker will be recognized for their contributions to the program prior to the contest.
