Last night, a little bit of history was made by a former member of the Syracuse Orange men’s soccer team. Alex Bono, goalkeeper for Toronto FC won his Toronto FC record 50th match for the Reds. In doing so, he also set records with his 100th start and 29th clean sheet of his career in Toronto.
Bono is no stranger to records and holds a few season marks from his three seasons wearing the gloves for the Orange. The marks he holds for Syracuse include season goals against average, clean sheets, consecutive shutout minutes and minutes played. The rest of the goalkeeping record books have his name at or near the top as well, including multiple top-ten marks in the seasons category and having the second most career wins, shutouts and goals against average despite playing only three years.
After the 2014 season, Bono left the Orange on a Generation Adidas contract, starting the consecutive streak for the program, and was drafted sixth overall by Toronto FC. Throughout his career in Toronto he has won an MLS Cup, a Supporter’s Sheild, a trio of Canadian Championships, and reached the finals of the CONCACAF Champions League. Bono has also been capped by the US Men’s National Team and appeared in a number of camps.
