GENESEO, N.Y. - SUNY Geneseo sophomore keeper Emily Janiszewski was credited with seven saves to preserve the Knights second-straight shutout in a 0-0 tie with visiting Nazareth, Thursday.
Geneseo (1-0-2) out-shot the Golden Flyers (2-0-1) by a 17-12 margin, but Nazareth senior keeper Allison Dobles totaled eight saves to keep her team un-scored upon in three-straight matches to start the season.
The Knights' best scoring chance came in the 83rd minute after senior forward Erin O'Connor's shot from inside 18 yards just sailed over the crossbar after a failed clear by the Golden Flyers.
Nazareth also had some solid scoring chances throughout the match, including a hard 10-yard shot by junior forward Julia Delgatti in the 53rd minute that a diving Janiszewski was able to glove down just inside the right post.
The game was played on the first day of action in the Golden Challenge for a Pink Cure, as proceeds from ticket and t-shirt sales were being donated to the Wilmont Cancer Center in Rochester, N.Y.
The tournament will continue on Saturday with Nazareth taking on Brockport at 4:30 p.m. prior to the Knights' contest with St. John Fisher at 7:00 p.m. Both games will be played at Geneseo.
