Binghamton University at St. Louis University 26 November 2003
Fourth-ranked and 7th-seeded SLU (14-3-3) played host to a 1-0 NCAA second-round victory over Binghamton University (12-3-7) at Robert R. Hermann Stadium before a vocal "blue" crowd of 2,562 on a brisk fall night. The Billikens outplayed the Bearcats for the entire match but could not score during regulation play. Freshman forward Vedad Ibisevic, on an assist from sophomore midfielder Cooper McKee, was finally able to put a shot in goal during the 6th minute (96th minute of game play) of the first overtime period. The victory allows the Billikens to host their NCAA third-round match. SLU junior goalkeeper Martin Hutton only needed to make 1 save during the contest; a result of the defensive pressure from the Billikens. SLU had 19 shots (11 shots-on-goal) as compared with 2 shots (1 shot-on-goal) by Binghamton.

Binghamton sophomore goalkeep Stefan Gonet (1) was overwhelmed by the Billikens offense but managed 10 saves during the game. Freshman forward/back Casey Spiess (19) has 2 shots (1 shot-on-goal).

SLU freshman forward Vedad Ibisevic (9) scored the winning goal in the first overtime period. Ibisevic took 5 shots (4 shots-on-goal) and was issued a yellow card late in the second period of play.

Billikens sophomore midfielder Cooper McKee (21) had the assist on Ibisevic's game-winning goal. Sophomore midfielder Ryan Wileman (22) took 4 shots (3 shots-on-goal).
