‘Superhero’ Galluzzo leads Bearcats to victory
September 21, 2015Tweet
Junior back Zach Galluzzo scored twice, powering Binghamton (5-2-0) to a 2-1 win over Siena (0-5-2) in a non-conference men’s soccer game on Sept. 19 before a season-high crowd of 1,065 fans at the Bearcats Sports Complex. The win gives the Bearcats a perfect 3-0-0 home record so far this season and was also their fifth victory in six games.
Galluzzo is the first Binghamton player to score twice in a game since Jake Keegan against UNC-Wilmington on Sept. 16, 2012. He now has two goals and an assist in the past two games.
Both of Galluzzo’s goals came off of corner kicks. His first goal came in the 15th minute with the assists going to graduate student forward Pascal Trappe and freshman midfielder Harrison Weilbacher. Galluzzo’s final goal broke a 1-1 tie in the 73rd minute with Weilbacher again getting an assist.
“Zach was our superhero tonight,” head coach Paul Marco said. “We are delighted to get the win but Siena played very well in the second half. We have been working a lot on set plays during training and it paid off tonight.”
In between Galluzzo’s goals, however, Siena tied the match on a goal by Junior Rosero in the 61st minute. He took a pass from Tom Allen and fired it home from close range for his team-high third goal of the season.
Binghamton finished with a 12-11 edge in shots. The Bearcats had the first six shots of the game but by the time Rosero scored, Siena had a 10-8 advantage.
Junior goalkeeper Robert Moewes made seven saves.
