Senior Chris Berardini (Batavia, NY) scored on a pass from fellow senior Ray Tremblay (Peachland, BC) midway through the third period to give The College at Brockport Hockey team a 3-2 lead and the Golden Eagles held on late in the game to preserve a State University of New York Athletic Conference (SUNYAC) victory over Geneseo Friday night in Geneseo. The Knights entered the game as the No. 6 ranked team in the country according to the latest United States College Hockey Online (USCHO) Division III poll.

Brockport (4-16-3 Overall, 2-11-1 SUNYAC) fell behind in the first period when Geneseo netted a power play goal 6:46 into the contest but evened the score very early in the second period when senior captain Justin Noble (Georgetown, ONT) netted an unassisted goal to make the score 1-1.

Late in the period, James Cody (Schwenksville, PA) gave Brockport a 2-1 lead on a short-handed goal with 3:12 left to play in the period.

Geneseo (15-6-2, 9-4-1) tied up the score again early in the third period but with 10:20 left in the period, Berardini scored the go-ahead goal.

In the closing minutes, Geneseo applied pressure on the Brockport goal but junior Oliver Wren (Oakville, ONT) made several key saves to preserve the victory. Wren finished with 41 saves as Geneseo outshot Brockport by a 43-28 margin.
