The Brockport Athletics Department reports...

Senior Sean O’Malley (Lakewood, OH) scored a power play goal early in the second period to cut a SUNY Geneseo lead to 2-1 but the Knights held on with a scoreless third period to defeat The College at Brockport Hockey team 2-1 Friday night in front of 1,700 fans at the Tuttle North Ice Arena in Brockport.

Brockport remained in fourth place in the State University of New York Athletic Conference (SUNYAC) standings despite the loss and need just a single point in the final two games or a SUNY Potsdam loss in its final two games to clinch a home playoff game in the first round of the conference playoffs on Tuesday, February 23.

SUNY Geneseo (11-10-1 Overall, 7-6-1 SUNYAC) scored twice in the opening period with the first goal coming at the 9:18 mark of the period and the second coming with just 1:41 to play in the first period.

In the second period, Brockport (12-10-1, 6-7-1) used a power play advantage in the first couple minutes of the period to cut into the lead. O’Malley took a pass from Ray Tremblay (Peachland, BC) on the right side of the Geneseo goal and fired a quick shot over the glove of the Knight’s goalie.

Brockport applied pressure late in the game and pulled goalie Todd Sheridan (Edison, NJ) for the extra attacker for the final minute of the game but was unable to get a clear shot on goal in the closing seconds. Sheridan finished with 27 saves for Brockport.
