Ian Finnerty had a huge afternoon, scoring four times in the contest as the Golden Eagles won 6-3 in a game marred by 28 penalties.

Here's the recap of the Saturday game as reported by LVC's athletics department...

HERSHEY, Pa. - Brockport scored five times on the power play as it topped Lebanon Valley, 6-3, in non-league ice hockey play Saturday at Hersheypark Arena.

The Dutchmen (0-17-0) outshot the Golden Eagles (8-8-0) 28-22, but poor special teams play allowed Brockport to convert on five of their 10 extra-man chances.

Ian Finnerty had four goals for the Golden Eagles, and Ray Tremblay added a goal and two assists. Sean Wilson, Brad Surdam, and Dan Dempsey all tallied for LVC.

Finnerty put Brockport out in front early with two goals sandwiched around Tremblay's, and Wilson cut it back to 3-1 when he scored on a two-man advantage at 17:03 of the first.

Surdam then made it a one-goal game with an unassisted goal to start the second period, but Finnerty got his hat trick when he scored with just 12 seconds in the period for the eventual game-winner, and he added his fourth in the third period. Tom Galiani scored on a 5-on-3 to seal the win, and Dempsey got a consolation goal with five minutes left for his sixth goal in a week.
