The Athletic Department reports on last night's game...

Senior Tom Galiani (Lindenhurst, NY) scored on a penalty shot late in the third period to cut the Cortland lead to 5-3 but despite increased offensive pressure for the remainder of the game, The College at Brockport Hockey team was unable to score down the stretch and dropped the season finale to the Red Dragons Saturday night in Cortland.

Cortland took a 2-1 lead in the first period after Brockport opened the scoring with an Ian Finnerty (Ardmore, PA) goal on a rebound early in the period.

The first intermission was extended nearly 45 minutes due to a pipe malfunction at the rink that caused hot water damage to the ice surface and when play finally resumed for the second period, Cortland extended the lead to 4-2 with two more goals in the second stanza.

Brockport's lone goal in the period was a shot by Matt DeLuca (Skippack, PA) with assists to Mike Baxter (Bracebridge, ONT) and Brett Jendra (Bolingbrook, IL).

In the third period, Cortland extended the lead but late in the period, Brockport made things interesting with Galiani's penalty shot goal and played with an empty net for a majority of the final two minutes to try to even the score.

Brockport won the shots battle with 43 compared to Cortland's 36.
