Vucic Nets the Deciding Goal as Knights Take Down Nazareth

GENESEO, N.Y. - SUNY Geneseo senior forward Joey Vucic scored the lone goal in the 102nd minute as the Knights earned a double-overtime victory over Nazareth, 1-0, on Tuesday night at College Stadium

HOW IT HAPPENED

  • Geneseo controlled the pace of play for most of the game, limiting the Golden Flyers to just four shots and one shot on goal.
  • During the regulation period, the Knights compiled 18 shots, including nine on goal, and five corner kicks, but could not find the net.
  • In the second overtime period, senior midfielder Nick Keneally played a cross to junior back Connor Ross on the right flank. Ross played the ball to the back post where Vucic finished with a shot to the top corner of the far post, giving Geneseo the golden goal win. 

QUICK FACTS 

  • The Knights (6-4-1) have played four overtime games this season, posting a 2-1-1 record in those contests, including a 2-0-1 record at home.
