GENESEO, N.Y. – SUNY Geneseo senior forward Anthony Marra totaled a goal and two assists while senior defenseman Mitch Ferguson logged two goals to lead the No. 2 Knights to a 7-0 shutout of visiting Stevenson (Md.), Saturday, for their 12th-consecutive victory. 

HOW IT HAPPENED 

  • Senior forward Joe Serpico scored on a redirect in front the Mustang crease off a shot from the point by first-year forward Chris Perna to open the scoring with 14:07 left in the first period. 
  • Ferguson tipped a short rebound inside the left post to finish a Knights' rush with 8:37 on the clock. 
  • Junior defenseman Cam Russell took a shot from the top of the slot and pounced on his own rebound to score on a wrist shot under the Stevenson goalie's pads at 6:25. 
  • Marra dropped a pass at the top of the slot to junior defenseman Tanner Salsberry, who scored on a wrist shot with 3:11 on the clock to post the Knights to a 4-0 lead after 20 minutes of play. 
  • Junior forward Tyson Empey took a shot from the top of the zone that rebounded directly to Marra for a short finish inside the left post with 15:55 left on the second-period clock. 
  • Just over 10 minutes later, junior forward Conlan Keenan dropped a puck at the top of the Mustang zone for senior forward Andrew Romano, who fed junior forward David Szmyd in the left slot for a one-timer with 5:31 on the clock.
