Vestal, NY (WBNG Binghamton) The Binghamton University men's soccer team has returned to the field at the Bearcats Sports Complex, but their goal-scoring machine from last season is no longer suited up in green and white. After a successful senior season, Jake Keegan has moved onto professional soccer, leaving a scoring void to be filled for BU.

How well the Bearcats fill Keegan's shoes could determine how successful BU will be this season. One player that could help score a few more goals and toss in more assists is Maine-Endwell grad Tommy Moon. That's something coach Paul Marco would like to see.

"I think at the end of the day Tommy will be measured by his productivity in the game and that will include getting assists and scoring goals," said Marco. "I think that he is terrific, I enjoy watching him play, he's great at training, I'd like to see that improved in match play."

"There's never pressure to me, it's always just a game," said Moon. "I'm going to do what the game requires me to do. I try not to do too much, I try just to play my role and I know if I play my role that will help the team win."

The Bearcats open up the season against Virginia Tech as part of the JMU Tournament.
