The Brockport Athletic Department reports....

Young Players Lead Hockey to Road Win

Sophomore Ryan Silveira (Brampton, ONT) and freshman James Cody (Schwenksville, PA) each scored a goal and added an assist to lead The College at Brockport Men’s Hockey team to a 5-2 victory over SUNY Morrisville Saturday night in a State University of New York Athletic Conference (SUNYAC) game in Morrisville.

Brockport (2-1 Overall, 1-0 SUNYAC) scored the first three goals of the game but not until the second period as the two teams played a scoreless first period. Early in the second period, Mike Gershon (Sparta, NJ) rifled a shot from the point on a powerplay for a 1-0 lead 1:45 into the period. Three minutes later, Dave McNab (Hamilton, ONT) stole a clearing pass as a Brockport penalty was expiring and walked in on the Morrisville goalie and beat him with a hard low shot for the 2-0 lead.

With eight minutes left in the period, Cody stole a pass in the neutral zone and skated in on a break away. His shot was saved by the goalie but the rebound popped out to Silveira and he tapped it in for his first goal of the season and a 3-0 Brockport lead.

Morrisville (0-4, 0-2) scored goals late in the second and eight minutes into the third period to cut the lead to 3-2 but Cody stole another clearing pass in the neutral zone and again was stopped with his first shot but this time jammed in his own rebound for the 4-2 advantage.

Late in the game, Ray Tremblay (Peachland, BC) stole a puck near the blue line while Morrisville was on a powerplay and had pulled its goalie for the extra attacker. Tremblay shot from outside the red line into the upper corner of the net for the final goal of the game and a 5-2 victory.

Junior Todd Sheridan (Edison, NJ) made 44 saves in the Brockport goal.
