For the second time in little more than a week, the Farmingdale State Women’s Soccer Team battled a ranked team to a positive result.

This time it was No. 15 SUNY Geneseo, who the Rams battled to a 1-1 draw in a home match on Sunday. On September 7, Farmingdale State beat then No. 9 Trinity College 2-1, the first time in program history that the Rams defeated a program ranked in the top-10.

In the third minute of the contest against Geneseo, FSC sophomore midfielder Edasia Martinez (Brentwood) scored on a cross in front by freshman forward Miranda Ozimek (Centerport) to give Farmingdale State an early 1-0 advantage.

The Rams played a strong first half and outshot SUNY Geneseo 6-1 and maintained its one-goal lead.

In the 53rd minute, Geneseo junior midfielder Jennifer Moran’s tied the game with a shot from 10 yards out. The Knights recorded two shots on goal over the remainder of regulation as the game went into overtime.

Geneseo senior forward Audrey Reid took the only two shots of the first overtime, but both were stopped by FSC sophomore goalie Daniella Ford (Elmont).

In the second overtime, the Knights again outshot Farmingdale State 2-0. Geneseo freshman midfielder Ellie Gregory (Commack) hit the post with just 1:30 remaining.

Ford finished with five saves, while Knights junior goalkeeper Emily Janiszewski made three saves.
