The Athletic Department offers this recap of Friday's game...

The College at Brockport Hockey team skated to a 2-2 tie with No. 7 Hobart at Tuttle North Ice Arena on Friday night, improving the team's overall record to 2-3-1. Chris Cangro (Holbrook, NY/New York Bobcats) and James Ryan (Richmond Hills, ONT/Toronto Lakeshore Patriots) scored for Brockport.

The Golden Eagles jumped out early on Hobart, ranked No. 7 in the latest poll. Cangro netted his team-leading fourth goal of the season at the 13:36 mark in the first period on a Brockport power play. Ryan gave Brockport a two goal lead four minutes later on a 3-on-1 breakaway. The Statesmen responded with two second period goals, but neither team was able to score in the third period or the overtime session.

Jared Lockhurst (Caledon, ONT/Wellington Dukes) stopped a career-high 46 shots for Brockport. The freshman netminder stopped 21 shots in the third period and overtime combined. The Golden Eagles were outshot 48-22 on the night. Lockhurst now has a .948 save percentage on the season and is averaging 36.2 saves per game in his five starts.

Cangro put Brockport on the board in the first period following a hooking penalty on Hobart. Steve Sachman (Medford, NY/New York Bobcats) found Mike Hayward (Toronto, ONT/Vaughan Vipers) in front of the net. Hayward saw an opening through the crowd and found Cangro on the left side to beat Hobart goalie Nick Broadwater. Cangro now has six points on the season and has had at least one point in each game Brockport has scored in this season.

Ryan added on to the lead shortly after, scoring his first career goal at the 17:50 mark. Jesse Facchini (Mississauga, ONT/Mississauga Chargers) controlled the puck in the Brockport zone and hit Ryan near center ice. Ryan streaked to the Hobart zone with two teammates and beat the lone defender himself, firing a top-shelf shot on Broadwater's glove side for the 2-0 lead.

Hobart cut the deficit in half in the second period, scoring at the 4:14 mark. The Golden Eagles received a game misconduct penalty at the 6:03 mark and managed to kill off the power play, but Hobart managed to score just seconds after the release of the penalty to even the score.

The Statesmen controlled much of the third period as Hobart owned a 17-2 advantage in shots in the final period of regulation. Lockhurst was able to fend off the attempts to salvage the tie.

Brockport continues its nonconference weekend with a trip to Elmira Saturday night at 7:00 pm. Last season the Golden Eagles upset the No. 5 nationally ranked Soaring Eagles 4-3 in overtime.
