Brockport beats Potsdam

Brockport's Doc Gentzler and Anthony Hora each netted a power-play goal just 1:33 apart early in the third period as the Golden Eagles rallied from a 2-1 deficit and topped host Potsdam 3-2 in SUNYAC Conference action on Saturday night. Hora, a freshman, played a part in all three goals including the game-winning goal as he finished the night with a team-best three points.

Gentzler totaled one goal and one assist and he now leads the team with four points on two goals and two assists this season.  Ryan Romeo also added one goal and one assist to give him three points on the year.

Brockport, coming off a 3-1 win at Plattsburgh on Friday night, is now 2-0 overall and 2-0 in SUNYAC play. The Golden Eagles return home on Friday night (7 p.m.) when they host Morrisville for Senior Night and SAAC's Go Green mental health awareness initiative.

Senior goalie Matt Schneider stopped 32 shots in net and picked up his second win of the young season.

Brockport got on the board first in the opening period when Romeo found the back of the net for the first time this season off assists from Ethan Solat and Hora.  Solat scored the game-winner against Plattsburgh on Friday night and he now has two points on the season.

Potsdam knotted the score at 1-1 midway through the first period when Rob Clerc scored at 11:59 off an assist from Sean Winikates. The Bears took the lead late in the second period after Tyler Young beat Schneider with just five seconds to go in the second period of play. Clerc and Bryce Ferrell assisted on what proved to be the final goal of the night for the home team.

The third period was all Brockport as the Golden Eagles netted two early power-play goals and the defense fended off the Bears onslaught for the remainder of the period.

Potsdam outshot Brockport 34-28 on the afternoon, but the Golden Eagles took advantage of their special team's chances as they finished the night going 2-for-8 with a man advantage.  Brockport's penalty kill also held the home team to a 1-for-6 effort on the power-play.
