TOUGH LOSS FOR LADY GT’s AT MEDAILLE
Buffalo, NY – It was a blustery day in Buffalo, NY on Saturday afternoon as Geneva’s women’s soccer team headed north to take on Medaille College. The Golden Tornadoes came away on the short end of a 2-1 decision to fall to 2-4 on the season. Meanwhile, Medaille improved to 6-1-1 in 2007.
Geneva seemingly out played and out shot Medialle, but the Golden Tornadoes could only score on one of its 18 shots. Geneva out shot Medaille 18-13, including eight shots on goal.
After a scoreless first half, Medaille opened the scoring with a tally in the 65th minute. It only took Geneva ten minutes to respond on Jenna Witkowski’s third goal of the season. With the game tied at 1-1, Medaille got the game winner in the 83rd minute on a breakaway goal that got past goalkeeper Amber Weaver. Weaver managed six saves in the game, but the final shot of the match proved to be the most costly.
Geneva will try to get its first road victory on Monday when it travels to Hiram College. Thus far in 2007, Geneva is 0-4 on the road and a perfect 2-0 on its home field. The Golden Tornadoes will return to familiar surroundings on Wednesday to host Walsh University.
A great majority of Geneva students – 70% – complete internships during the course of their study.
