ROCHESTER, N.Y. - SUNY Geneseo junior forward Audrey Reid scored a goal in the fourth minute but it was host Rochester bouncing back with the equalizer in the 38th minute for a 1-1 tie in both squads' season opener at the Flower Cith Classic.
Geneseo took a 1-0 lead at 3:50. Senior midfielder Emily Green fought off a challenge in the middle and pushed the ball wide to the right where Reid was rushing free. Reid cut into the box unchallenged and, from 10 yards out at an angle, drove the ball into the roof of the net on the left side.
Knights' sophomore goalie Emily Janiszewski was credited with four saves, including a diving stop on her right post in the final seconds of the game to preserve the tie.
Geneseo returns to action on Saturday, taking on Union at 11:00 a.m.
