GENESEO, N.Y. – SUNY Geneseo senior midfielder Andrew Cummings scored a game-high four goals while sophomore goalie Tyler Wetzel totaled 14 saves in his first collegiate start to lead the Knights to a 6-5 victory at Clarkson, Saturday.

- First-year attackman Connor Griffin gave Geneseo a three-goal cushion with 9:37 to play in the second. The Golden Knights answered four minutes later, but tallies by Cummings and first-year midfielder James Pratt in a 21-second span pushed Geneseo to a 6-2 lead with 1:33 left in the half.
