The Genesee Community College men’s soccer team cruised to their third victory of the season on Saturday afternoon, handling visiting Onondaga Community College 7-0.
The Cougars struck early when Theo Stamotopolous beat the OCC goalkeeper just a minute and a half into the opening period to put Genesee in front 1-0. Nathan Rose made it 2-0 with a goal in the 15th minute, and then assisted on a Lee Micklethwaite goal about six minutes later to give the Cougars a three-goal lead. Sam Cassidy and George Anthony followed with goals in the 32nd and 34th minutes to cap off a five-goal first half, sending GCC into the break with the lead.
Jake O’Leary and Cameron Evans weren’t tested often in net, but combined for the shutout, the second of the year for Genesee. Dom Francis added a goal in the fourth minute of the second half before Cassidy scored his second of the game in the 25th minute to put the finishing touches on OCC.
The win improves Genesee to 3-1 on the season. The Cougars will return to action on Tuesday afternoon when they host Jefferson Community College at 4pm.
