Brockport corrals the #10 Mustangs

The College at Brockport hockey team rallied from a 3-1 second period deficit to earn a 4-3 overtime victory on the road at nationally-ranked No. 10 Stevenson University on Saturday night.  Captain Connor Hutchins netted the game winner with just 1:02 left in the overtime period to help the Golden Eagles secure their fourth straight one goal victory.

Brockport improved to 9-6 overall and won its second overtime contest in the last three games.  Seven of the nine Golden Eagle victories this season have come by just one goal.  Stevenson's record fell to 10-3 overall and they have now lost two straight games to SUNYAC opponents after falling to Geneseo on Friday night.

Brockport's Ryan Romeo continued his solid start to the second half of the season as he posted a game-high one goal and two assists for the Golden Eagles.  Romeo was able to force overtime after netting an unassisted goal, his sixth of the year, with just 2:56 to go in regulation.

Jordan Renaud kickstarted the Brockport comeback as he registered his sixth goal of the season, off assists from Anthony Hora and Romeo, at the 8:04 marker of the third period to set the score at 3-2 in favor of the Mustangs.

Stevens jumped out to a 2-1 first period lead behind the momentum of a Dominic Brenza goal just 1:07 into the contest.  Brockport captain Hunter Laslo answered with his fourth goal of the season midway through the first period to knot the score at 1-1.

Stevenson then rattled off two goals in in a span of less than seven minutes to take a 3-1 lead with under 14 minutes to go in the contest.

Brockport's Mitchell Parsons finished the night with two assists, while Jeremy Solat also added one helper.

Golden Eagle goalie Matt Schneider stopped 21 shots on the day as he picked up his eighth win of the season.  Ryan Kenny made 29 saves in net for the Mustangs.

Brockport outshot Stevenson 33-24 on the day and the Golden Eagles held the Mustangs to an 0-for-3 effort on the power-play.
