Scoreless Streak Reaches 520 Minutes in Draw

The Keuka College women's soccer team extended its scoreless streak to 520 minutes during Tuesday night's 0-0, double-overtime draw with Alfred University in Alfred, N.Y.

Freshman Kenna Kosinski (Mumford, N.Y./Caledonia-Mumford), the two-time defending North Eastern Athletic Conference (NEAC) Defensive Player of the Week, made three saves as the Wolfpack (8-3-1) earned a draw with the Saxons (3-7-2).

The Green and Gold outshot the Saxons 22-7, including 17-5 in regulation and 4-0 in the second overtime, but could not find a way to beat Alfred keeper Sammy Jo Shanahan (13 saves).

In the second OT, junior Hannah Dalle (Rochester, N.Y./Greece Olympia) and sophomore Abbey David (Kendall, N.Y./Kendall) each had solid looks on goal that were stopped by Shanahan.

Sanford and freshman Emily Wolf (Hornell, N.Y./Hornell) also took shots on goal that missed the mark in the second OT.

Late in regulation, Alfred's Samantha Faller launched a pair of shots towards the Keuka goal, but each time, Kosinski was there to make the save and keep the game scoreless.

The Wolfpack's best scoring chance came in the 21st minute, when Wolf got free and ripped a shot on goal, but her effort struck the post, and a good scoring opportunity was denied.

Kosinski and the women's soccer team have not allowed a goal since the 42nd minute of a 1-0 loss at Penn College on Sept. 20.

Besides Kosinski, the defense was led by Dalle, sophomores Kassandra Bailey (Fillmore, N.Y./Fillmore) and Kaitlyn Talbot (Hornell, N.Y./Arkport), and freshman Sarah Hartman (Macedon, N.Y./Wayne).

Kosinski has allowed only nine goals in 897 minutes of action, sporting a 0.90 goals-against average with 40 saves. She leads the NEAC in saves percentage (.816), is second in goals-against average, and is third in fewest goals allowed.

The Wolfpack close the year with four straight home games, including NEAC showdowns with Penn State-Abington (8-4, 7-1 NEAC), Penn State-Berks (10-1, 7-0 NEAC) and Lancaster Bible College (8-4, 5-2 NEAC).

Keuka hosts Abington at 1 p.m. Saturday afternoon in a matchup of two of the top three teams in the NEAC standings.
