The No. 3 Genesee Community College men's soccer team ended its regular season on a three-game winning streak after beating visiting Broome 5-1 Oct. 20.
The win was the Cougars' 10th in its last 11 starts as the Cougars finished the regular season with a 15-3 record and now await the winner of a playoff quarterfinal matchup between Hudson valley and Mohawk Valley on Oct. 23. The winner will travel to Batavia Oct. 25 for a District A NJCAA Region-III semifinal game at 7:30 p.m.
Rodrigo Albuquerque's penalty kick early in the first half proved to be the game winner and also the freshman's nation-leading eighth winner on the season.
Albuquerque finished with a pair of goals and at the game's end had established a 19-point lead in the race as the National Junior College Athletic Association D-III's leading scorer.
Ed Port added a pair of assist to bring his total to 21 – also a nation-leading number in that category.
