Brockport ties Plattsburgh

The College at Brockport men's ice hockey team tied Plattsburgh State Saturday night, by a score of 1-1. With the tie, the Golden Eagles move to (4-1-1) on the season and (2-1-1) in the SUNYAC, while the Cardinals move to (3-0-1) overall and (3-0-1) in conference.

The two teams skated to a scoreless first period, with Plattsburgh outshooting the Golden Eagles 14-8 in the first 20. Brockport's netminder Jake Moore stood tough to all 14 including three shots that came on the powerplay. The Green and Gold took to the PP three times in the first period but the Cardinals penalty killers had all the answers.

The Golden Eagles took the lead eight minutes into the period off a powerplay goal scored by Doc Gentzler with assists to Hunter Laslo and Casey Winn. The Cardinals answered with a goal of their own five minutes later, tying the game at one goal apiece.

Brockport took to the power play a minute into the third period but the Cardinals penalty killers held the Green and Gold to one shot on net. The Cardinals peppered Moore with 14 shots in the final twenty minutes of regulation but he shut the door. Neither team could pull away after 60 minutes, resulting in a five-minute overtime period.

After 65 minutes of hockey, a winner could not be decided, Brockport's goalie Jake Moore finished the night with a 45 save performance and stays unbeaten as a starter.

"I thought the entire team battled hard for 65 minutes," said head coach Brian Dickinson "Jake Moore was phenomenal in goal and kept (Plattsburgh) at bay when we scrambled defensively, It was a great college hockey game."
