No. 3 Men’s Soccer Team Brings Win Streak to Eight
The No. 3 Genesee Community College men's soccer team took a 4-0 lead into the intermission before recording a 6-1 win over visiting Jamestown Community College Oct.4. The win was the Cougars' eighth in-a-row and left the team with a 9-2 record overall.
Philip Melo needed just a dozen minutes into the contest to notch the game's first two goals - the second of which was the official game winner.
Charlie Livesey then recorded three of his team-high six points on the team's next two goals for a 4-0 lead at the break. Livesey tallied once in each half, while earning assists on Ben Wattis' first-half goal and on Melo's game-winner to account for his impressive performance.
Rounding out the scoring was a second-half goal by Adam Price and an assist by Billy Murphy on the game's opening goal.
The Cougars out-shot the Jayhawks 29-6 overall, and 17-3 with shots on net. Leading the way in shots was Sam Hall with seven, while Melo added a half-dozen for the night.
Gaurav Cheema recorded two saves in the win, while the Cougars also held the edge in corner kicks, 9-2.
Genesee will travel to No. 4 Herkimer Oct. 7 with a 3 p.m. start. The Cougars leap-frogged over the Generals in the most recent National Junior Collegiate Athletic Association D-III Poll after Herkimer dropped a 3-2 game to Cayuga, a team the Cougars beat Sept. 20.
