Men's Soccer Falls Short Against Brockport, 2-1

GENESEO, N.Y. - SUNY Geneseo first-year forward Owen Frank scored for the Knights, but Brockport scored a late second half goal as the Knights fell, 2-1, at College Stadium on Saturday. 

HOW IT HAPPENED

  • Brockport scored quickly, cashing in on a header in the 11th minute, but first-year goalkeeper Will Price kept the Knights within striking distance, making four first half saves.
