The No. 4 Genesee Community College men's lacrosse team battled two oppositions April 4 with the first being a fierce wind and the second being the visiting Jefferson Community College Cannoneers.
Genesee scored the first 16 goals, but with about a minute to go in the second quarter Jefferson got on the board with a man-up tally.
The Cougars would add six goals in the third and five in the fourth for the 27-1 final, with Jake D'Agostino sending a shot the length of the field that found the back of the Cannoneer net as time expired.
Four different Cougars took turns each quarter defending the goal, while up front four players accounted for 17 of the 27 goals.
Leading the way in goals was Jason Chiodo with five – including the official game winner. Kevin McParlene, Alex Mack, and Jordan Brennan each scored four, while a pair of goals came from both Joshua Shields and Evan Hollfelder – with the latter adding five assists to co-lead the team in points with seven.
Brennan added three helpers to equal Hollfelder's seven points, while Mack had a pair of assists for a six-point day.
Single goals were scored by Josh Bernas, Samuel Koczwara, Patrick Bilbrey, D'Agostino, Robert Middlebrook and Andrew Forte, who had nearly half of Genesee's 26 faceoff wins with a dozen wins at a winning percentage of about 86.
The Cougars peppered 66 shots at the Jefferson net and held a considerable edge in groundballs at 34-9.
The Cougars next host No. 3 Howard Community College (Md.) in a battle of top-four nationally-ranked teams April 8 at 12 p.m.
