KC Notes:

  • It was Keuka's first loss to Bryn Athyn. The Wolves still hold a 2-1 lead in the series with the Lions
  • The two goals tied Keuka's total earlier this season against Cazenovia as the fewest ever scored by the Green and Gold in a North Eastern Athletic Conference history
  • The loss is only the 9th in school history in an NEAC game and it is the first time since the 2010 season that Keuka College has lost two conference games

Coming up for Keuka College: The Wolves return home to host SUNY Cobleskill in a North Eastern Athletic Conference game on Wednesday afternoon at the Jephson Community Athletic Complex. The Wolves defeated the Fighting Tigers 19-5 last season and have won all nine meetings between the two teams.
