The Athletics Department's recap of last night night's game:
Justin Noble (Georgetown, ONT) and Jason Gorrie (Etobicoke, ONT) scored third-period power play goals to close a 3-0 lead but The College at Brockport Hockey team surrendered a late empty-net goal to fall 4-2 to Hobart College Thursday night in Geneva in the first game of 2010 for the Golden Eagles.
Brockport (6-7) fell behind on a late first-period goal for the Statesmen (6-6-2) and went down by a 3-0 score as Hobart added two more goals in the first 12 minutes of the second period.Noble scored six minutes into the final period to cut the lead to 3-1. It was his fifth goal of the season and was assisted by Dan Galiani (Lindenhurst, NY) and Gregg Amato (Ocean Gate, NJ).
Two minutes later, Gorrie made it a 3-2 game with his fourth goal of the season as Brockport struck again on the power play. Amato and Adam Shoff (Port Dover, ONT) assisted on the goal.
Brockport applied offensive pressure for the remainder of the third period and held a 21-10 shots advantage of the final 20 minutes but could not score the equalizer. With less than a minute to play in the game, Brockport pulled goalie Todd Sheridan (Edison, NJ) for the extra attacker but Hobart scored an empty-net goal for the final score.
Sheridan finished with 35 saves for the Golden Eagles.
