ROCHESTER, N.Y. - SUNY Geneseo first-year forward Ari Samoohy buried a penalty kick in the 61st minute to lift the Knights to a 1-0 victory over host Nazareth on Tuesday afternoon at Golden Flyer Stadium.


  • Geneseo and Nazareth played through a scoreless first half with the Knights outshooting the hosts, 5-4. 
  • In the 61st minute, Samoohy was fouled inside the box on an attack from the right flank to earn a penalty. He slotted the ensuing kick to put Geneseo ahead. 
  • Junior goalkeeper Dillon Medd made a pair of saves to preserve the shutout and earn the win for the Knights.


  • Samoohy's penalty kick marks the first that the Knights have earned all season. Geneseo has not missed a penalty since 2014, going 5-for-5 since.
  • Medd recorded his second shutout of the season, tying junior goalkeeper Liam Dole for the team lead. 
  • Geneseo outshot Nazareth, 12-10, including five shots on goal to the Golden Flyers' two.
