Binghamton 2  Manchester 0

Behind 24 saves from rookie goaltender Billy Thompson, the Binghamton Senators closed out its seven-game homestand with a 2-0 win over the Manchester Monarchs in the first ever meeting between the clubs in front of 4,203 fans at the Broome County Veterans Memorial Arena Friday night.

Serge Payer took just 54 seconds into the contest to extend his goal-scoring streak to three games when his right wing wrister trickled past Monarch goaltender Milan Hnilicka for a 1-0 lead.

Steve Bancroft, who figured in both goals, drew an assist along with Jody Hull.

Binghamton made it 2-0 with 2:28 left in the opening frame as Josh Langfeld followed up on a Bancroft rebound for his eighth of the year to close out the scoring in the period and the game.

Daniel Corso picked up a helper on the Langfeld marker which extended his goal streak to three straight.

Defense ruled the rest of the way as the clubs combined for just 45 shots (24-21 Manchester) on the night.

Thompson, appearing in just his fourth game of the year, was not severely tested in picking up his first professional shutout.

Bryan Muir provided Thompson with his toughest test with a slashot from the right point that the rookie netminder gloved down through a crowd early in the third period.

The win, coming despite the Sens taking the collar in seven power play chances, gave Binghamton a 3-2-1-1 mark on the season-high seven-game homestand.

The Sensí 22 points ties idle Bridgeport for second place in the East Division with the two teams set to meet Sunday in Connecticut at 4:05 p.m.

But first, itís a Saturday night encounter with the Albany River Rats at Pepsi Arena (7:00 p.m).  Binghamton will look for retribution as the Rats skated out of the Southern Tier with three of four points in last weekendís two-game set.

Saturdayís battle will mark the first road test for the Sens since a 2-2 tie in Manitoba on October 28th.
