GENESEO, N.Y. - SUNY Geneseo sophomore goalkeeper Dillon Medd tallied a season-high nine saves as the Knights fell to visiting Buffalo State, 1-0, in both teams' State University of New York Athletic Conference (SUNYAC) opener Friday at College Stadium

HOW IT HAPPENED

  • Geneseo's (3-3-1, 0-1-0) best scoring chance came in the 90th minute when a series of deflections saw the ball fall to Medd who had pushed forward in for the final seconds, but his shot was saved by Bengals' goalkeeper.
