The playoffs begin Wednesday and all hopes are on Brockport making this magical season continue.
They will be traveling to Platsburgh. In two games this year the teams tied 1-1 and then the Cardinals beat Brockport at Brockport 4-1.
The Golden Eagles have to apply pressure against a
defensive team that allows a solid 2.44 goals per game and got better as the season went on. Of benefit to
Brockport's even-better defense (2.00 goals per game), Plattsburgh's goal output ranks only 57th in all of DIII (2.60 goals per game). They have 3 guys with 7 goals and none more than that. They don't even have a 15-point scorer! Highly unusual for a Bob Emery team.
Jimmy Poreda has been their savior in goal with a .936 save percentage. It
will take some gritty lunchbucket goals to beat him -- he'll stop flash
It's going to be a hard-fought, physical game in a tough environment.
