No. 17 Women's Soccer Falls at Cortland, 2-1

CORTLAND, N.Y. - SUNY Geneseo junior forward Domenica Piccoli scored in the fifth minute of the game, but the Knights fell to host Cortland, 2-1, in a State University of New York Athletic Conference (SUNYAC) battle on Friday afternoon. 

HOW IT HAPPENED

  • Cortland got on the board in the third minute on a defensive breakdown, snapping Geneseo's eight-game shutout streak to make it 1-0. 
  • Just under two minutes later, junior midfielder Grace Dunnigan crossed in a loose ball to the near post where sophomore forward Miranda Ozimek flicked it over the charging keeper and Piccoli knocked the ball in to tie the game. 
  • In the second half, Cortland struck again on a one-timer from close range to take a 2-1 advantage. 
  • Geneseo had opportunities but the Red Dragons held the Knights off.
