The No. 4 Genesee Community College men's soccer team upset visiting No.1 Herkimer 2-0 Oct 6.

Genesee scored about 25 minutes into the contest and then 25 minutes later for the shutout win.

Current back-to-back National Junior College Athletic Association Men's Soccer Player of the Week Rodrigo Albuquerque got the game winner, while Jose Manoel Cavalini added an insurance marker six minutes into the second half.

Hiago Barros de Souza set-up the game winner and Ed Port assisted on the Cougars' second goal.
