From the Brockport Athletic Department....

Senior Tim Crowley (Brasher Falls, NY) scored 17 seconds into the game for The College at Brockport Hockey team but Castleton State University rebounded to score twice in the second period and twice more in the third to post a 4-1 victory over the Golden Eagles in the first round of the Castleton State University Tournament Saturday night in Rutland, Vermont.

Brockport (3-5-1) opened the game quickly as Crowley took a pass from Sean O’Malley (Lakewood, OH) and posted a 1-0 Golden Eagles lead early in the contest. Despite dominating the shots on goal over the first two periods as Brockport held a 17-9 advantage, Castleton (1-2) scored twice in the second period to take a lead into the final period of play.

In the third period, Brockport had several chances to get back into the game including a 5-3 power play advantage in the first five minutes of the period but the Castleton State defense held the Golden Eagles scoreless.

The Spartans took a 3-1 lead less than two minutes after the Brockport power play and after two more Brockport extra-man opportunities, took a 4-1 lead with 7:27 left in the period.
Brockport struggled on the power play finishing the game 0-for-9 and was 0-for-4 in the third period.

Brockport will face Becker College in the consolation game at Noon Sunday after Becker dropped a 6-1 decision to Neumann College earlier Saturday.
