Hockey Drops Conference Game on the Road
November 5, 2010

Junior James Cody (Schwenksville, PA) continued his hot play for The College at Brockport Hockey team scoring one goal and adding an assist but the Golden Eagles surrendered five goals in the third period and dropped an 8-2 decision to Morrisville in a State University of New York Athletic Conference (SUNYAC) game Friday night in Morrisville.

After a scoreless first period, Morrisville (1-1 Overall, 1-0 SUNAYC) scored five minutes into the second period for the early lead but Brockport (0-4, 0-3) responded 1:39 later as Dan Galiani (Lindenhurst, NY) scored first goal of the season. Cody and Ray Tremblay (Peachland, BC) assisted on the play to tie the score at 1-1.

Four minutes later seemed to be the turning point of the game as Morrisville took a 2-1 lead on a controversial goal with a delayed penalty waiting to be called and a battle for the puck in front of the net. After a brief discussion, the goal was allowed giving the Mustangs a 2-1 lead and due to a new rule change in 2010-11, the penalty that was waiting to be called was still assessed to Brockport. Just 25 seconds into the power play, Morrisville scored on a long wrist shot to make it a 3-1 score.

The score remained 3-1 for the remainder of the second period and in the third stanza, Morrisville rallied for two goal in the first five minutes of the period and then added two more in a span of 30 seconds midway through the period for a 7-1 advantage.

Cody scored for the Golden Eagles at the 16:23 mark of the period with a power play goal but Morrisville added a late goal for the final score.

“We just didn’t adjust well,” said head coach Brian Dickinson. “They won a lot of pucks between the red line and the blue line and we didn’t react well. Everything turned on that second period goal. We thought the whistle had blown (to stop the play) but it didn’t go our way. Regardless of that, we need to be able to fight through those situations.”

Brockport surrendered 47 shots on goal and junior Oliver Wren (Toronto, ONT) and freshman Joe Reagan (Yonkers, NY) combined to make 39 saves.
