GCC's men’s soccer team extends undefeated streak to nine
The No. 3 Genesee Community College men's soccer team rallied twice to keep pace with No. 4 Herkimer in finishing with a 2-2 road tie in extending their unbeaten streak to nine games.
The Cougars then went on to win the post-game penalty kick competition 3-1 for seeding purposes.
Sam Hall converted a Charlie Livesey corner kick with about 20 seconds left in regulation to send the contest into extra sessions. Prior to that Glenn Holmes converted a penalty kick to knot the game at 1-1 after both teams played a scoreless first half.
David Ormiston out-dueled his counterpart in net with a double-digit save performance with 10. In addition, he was again sharper than the Generals' goalkeeper in allowing just one goal in the penalty-kick session.
Holmes and Hall scored again during the penalty kicks with Ryan Price getting the team's third goal. That's all the Cougars would need after Ormiston stopped Herkimer's fourth shooter and made it mathematically impossible for Herkimer to win the penalty kick shootout with both teams having only one shooter remaining.
Both teams finished with four corner kicks.
This was the fourth time this season that the Cougars have faced a team that has appeared in the National Junior Collegiate Athletic Association polls with none of those teams able to beat Genesee. Of the four, Herkimer has appeared highest at No. 2.
