Despite completing a road contest against No. 4 Herkimer just 18 hours from the previous day, the No. 3 Genesee Community College men's soccer team bested visiting Fulton-Montgomery Community College 7-1 Oct. 8. The win improved the Cougars' record to 10-2-1, while the Raiders dropped to 5-5 on the season.
Charlie Livesey 's penalty kick about 30 minutes into the contest proved to be the game winner as Livesey would finish the day with a helper as well and a three-point afternoon.
Sam Hall picked up where he left off after scoring the tying goal against the No. 4 Generals in the final minute the night before by also getting the team's first goal against the Raiders to round out the Cougars' first-half scoring.
Hijiri Sano led Genesee in the second half with two of its five goals. Phillip Melo, Ryan Price and Adam Price also added goals; while Matheus Araujo, Leo Anthony and Alejandro Ocampo added assists on the day.
Genesee out-shot the Raiders 36-7 with 11 Cougar shots finding the net. Genesee also held the edge in corner kicks, 11-1.
