Geneseo Sports Information Department

GENEVA, N.Y. – SUNY Geneseo junior goalkeeper Julia McDonald made three saves, but it was Mary Washington advancing from the opening round NCAA Division III Women's Soccer Tournament with a 3-0 victory, Saturday, at William Smith.


  • Mary Washington junior midfielder Brielle Mitchell scored the game's first goal in the eighth minute, tucking away a pass across the box from first-year midfielder Mikaela O'Fallon.
  • The Eagles (12-10-0) tacked on another tally just five minutes later on its third corner of the game when sophomore forward Abby Zimmerman found the net. McDonald got her right hand to the ball, but the header from six yards away found the top left corner of the frame.
  • First-year forward Faye Higgins was credited for the Knights' first shot-on-goal in the 31st minute of play, a volley just outside the 18-yard box, but it was saved as Mary Washington took its 2-0 advantage into the break.
  • The Eagles added to their lead ten minutes into the second half when senior midfielder Malorie Joseph fired a right-footed shot from 20 yards away past the outstretched McDonald, making it 3-0.
  • The Knights had their best scoring opportunity of the game in the final minute when first-year forward McKinley Skala placed a six-yard shot on-goal, but it was stopped by a diving save from Mary Washington first-year goalkeeper Allison Nork.


  • Mary Washington finished the contest with a 12-8 shot advantage.
  • Geneseo (15-4-1) made its fourth NCAA Tournament appearance in the past six seasons, earning the program's first at-large bid to the tournament.
  • The Knights capped off the season leading the State University of New York Athletic Conference (SUNYAC) in goals allowed average with 0.62, allowing just 12 goals in nine conference matchups.
  • Geneseo graduates a six-member senior class that earned two SUNYAC Championships, three NCAA Tournament berths, and an NCAA Tournament Sweet 16 appearance in 2017.
