Maddie Mark scored four goals and added two assists as No. 6 Geneseo improved to 13-3-1 on the season with the 7-0 victory over visiting No. 11 Cuba Rushford/Hinsdale Tuesday at Don DeBadts Field.
Mark scored her first two goals at the 11- and 12-minute marks and added her other two in the 58th and 59th minute.
In all, four different players scored goals for Geneseo.
Madi Ladelpha scored the game’s opening goal just three minutes in off an assist from Ali Fowler.
Emily Lamb added a goal in the 26th minute assisted by Mark.
Rachael Matthews also scored in the second half for the Lady Devils.
Geneseo keeper Caroline Capel posted the clean sheet with two saves.
“This was a great showing from the team top to bottom,” Geneseo coach Nick Drollette said. “Our defense was solid and kept them from having any meaningful opportunities on goal. Our midfield was very solid and definitely created the chances for us going forward. We saw some high quality finishes tonight from forwards and mids alike. The senior leadership we are getting is something that has really made a big difference. They are composed and always looking to lead verbally and by example.”
Geneseo will take on No. 3 Keshequa in Friday’s quarterfinals in what is expected to be a dandy between the two longtime LCAA foes.
Both teams split a pair of 1-0 contests this season.
“Keshequa is very tough,” coach Drollette said. “We split the season series and I think both teams feel like they lost on the lone mistake they made that night. They are obviously very strong and they match up well with us in the midfield. The C2 bracket is insanely difficult so this is probably going to have some sectional final vibes in it. If you’re an impartial soccer fan, Friday is going to be fun.”
No. 3 Keshequa 7, No. 14 Honeoye 0
Braelyn Isaman can light things up in a hurry.
The freshman scored four goals, including three in the second half as Keshequa whipped Honeoye.
Isaman leads Keshequa this season with 24 goals and 10 assists.
Libby Benner scored once and also had an assist while Kelsey Davis and Ava Thayer also scored goals for Keshequa.
Julia Rautenstrauch, Riley Nageldinger and Payton Bugman all had assists.
Incredibly, Keshequa has outscored their opponents 94-7 this season.
