Women's Soccer Comes Up Short At Buffalo State, 1-0

BUFFALO, N.Y. – SUNY Geneseo first-year keeper Emily Janiszewski collected six saves as the Knights came up short at Buffalo State, 1-0, in State University of New York Athletic Conference (SUNYAC) action, Saturday afternoon.

"We had a couple really good opportunities early in the first half but we didn't put it away and they did," said head coach Nate Wiley. "It was a game between two very good teams and we just didn't have enough today. Our defenders matched up well against their forwards and were able to sort out their offensive attack. We weren't responsible in the final third but the girls are resilient and realize we have a whole week ahead of us to work on things."

The Knights' best opportunity came in the seventh minute as senior midfielder Marissa Benson sent a header shot just wide off a corner kick from senior forward Kelsey Raschke.

The host Bengals found the back of the net in the 12th minute of play as senior back Gabrianna Boldinski scored on a header off a corner kick by junior forward Melissa Smith. The Knights would take a 5-3 edge in shots into halftime.

Buffalo State (6-3, 2-0 SUNYAC) outshot Geneseo, 4-1, for the remainder of the game and finished with a 6-3 advantage in corners.

The Knights (5-2-1, 1-1 SUNYAC) return to action next Friday, Oct. 2nd, at home opposite New Paltz. Kick-off is scheduled for 3 p.m.

POSTGAME NOTE: Geneseo received a yellow card in the 31st minute of the game, breaking the nation's longest streak without a card. The Knights hadn't been booked in 6,181:04 minutes, spanning five seasons and 67 matches.
