HOUGHTON, N.Y. - The SUNY Geneseo women's soccer team outshot host Houghton College, 22-3, but could not find the net as the Knights settled for a 0-0 draw against the Highlanders on Tuesday night at Burke Field.

Junior midfielder Catherine Cunningham had a scoring opportunity just before halftime, but it was turned away. The two teams entered the break scoreless.

The Knights (14-1-2) totaled 10 shots in the second half and overtime periods combined, but could not manufacture a goal.

Geneseo yielded just three shots, including two on goal. Both attempts were saved by junior goalkeeper Emily Janiszewski


Geneseo was shutout for just the second time this season, while the Knights' defense recorded their 10th shutout of the year.

Janiszewski recorded her eighth shutout of the season and the 26th of her career.

The result marks the Knights' first tie with Houghton in 18 meetings. Geneseo owns a 16-1-1 record against the Highlanders.


The Knights earned the top seed in the State University of New York Athletic Conference (SUNYAC) Tournament and will host either Oneonta or Potsdam at 1:00 p.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 1 in the semifinal round.
