The #6 Genesee Community College men’s lacrosse team followed its 28-goal record-setting performance on Saturday with another big win on Wednesday as they defeated Western New York Athletic Conference rival Niagara County Community College 21-1.
Dana Ray got Genesee on the board off of a feed from Sean Kidder and the Cougars never looked back.
Genesee tallied 19 unanswered goals before the Thunderwolves ended the shutout bid with a goal early in the fourth quarter.
In all, 12 different Cougars scored and they were led by freshman attack Joshua Wester who registered four goals.
Six players scored more than once for Genesee as Tyler Godfrey scored a hat trick and Tyler Meegan, Tyler Skowronski, Nick Gray and Ray each added 2 goals apiece.
Wester and Ray helped facilitate the Cougar offense as they recorded two and three assists respectively.
From the beginning, GCC took command of the face-off circle as Ben Madafferi won 19 of them.
On the defensive end, Meegan and Madafferi held NCCC in check all night as they combined for 13 ground balls. Merek Regan added seven takeaways and four ground balls and Johnny Astrologo finished with six ground balls and four takeaways.
Mark Pucek had a solid night in goal as he saved all five of the shots he faced and held NCCC scoreless while he was in net. Craig Seneca filled in for Pucek late in the game and saved three shots.
Genesee (5-2, 2-0) will travel to no. 1 Onondaga Community College on Saturday. Face-off is scheduled for 1pm.
