GENESEO, N.Y. - SUNY Geneseo senior captain Pat Lynch was named the State University of New York Athletic Conference (SUNYAC) Men's Soccer Offensive Player of the Week, Monday, following a pair of overtime victories for the Knights on the opening weekend of conference play.
On Saturday, Lynch was credited with the overtime game-winning goal in Geneseo's 3-2 victory over visiting Fredonia. Eight minutes into the extra period, he sent a looping shot off a free kick from 30 yards into the top-right corner of the net for the deciding goal.
On Friday, Lynch contributed an assist as the Knights fought off a Buffalo State comeback attempt for a 3-2 overtime win.
Lynch and the Knights (4-4-1, 2-0 SUNYAC) return to action on Tuesday afternoon, hosting Nazareth in a non-league match slated to kickoff at 4:00 p.m. at Saratoga Field.
