Cougars edge Kats, move on in Region III Playoffs

The Genesee Community College men’s soccer team edged out Erie Community College in the quarterfinals of the Region III playoffs on Tuesday night, downing the visiting Kats 1-0.
A slick pitch caused the Cougars to lack offensive rhythm throughout the match as a number of passes sailed off the mark. Genesee had only a few scoring opportunities in the first half, including a cross from Dom Francis to Aaron Dunks midway through, that Dunks shot over the Erie net from about 20 yards out.
Dunks would make up for it, as the freshman tallied the only goal of the game in the 49th minute of the second half to put the Cougars on the board. GCC was unable to capitalize on another scoring chance the rest of the night, but Jake O’Leary kept Erie off the board while in net for the Cougars.
Genesee, the overall number one seed, will move on to the semifinals this weekend in Herkimer, NY. The Cougars will take on Tompkins-Cortland Community College on Saturday afternoon at 3pm.
