Jonny Bonner (Donegal, Ireland) gave GCC a 1-0 lead just four minutes into the game. Ten minutes later, Dom Francis (Huddersfield, England) upped the lead to 2-0. The scored remained 2-0 at the half.

In the second half, Brady Smith (Brisbane, Australia) gave Genesee a 3-0 lead when he scored in the 12th minute. Erie scored their lone goal in the 16th minute before Smith scored again off of a nice cross from Brandon Reiner (Attica, NY) to give GCC a 4-1 lead. The Cougars added another goal from Bonner, two goals from Sean Brettel (Welwyn Garden City, England) and a late goal from Theo Stamatopolous (Norwich, England) to win in convincing fashion.

Genesee improves to 13-1-2 on the season. They will move on in the Region III playoffs to face Tompkins Cortland Community College, who defeated Onondaga Community College 2-0 on Tuesday, at TCCC in the semi finals on Saturday afternoon.
