Brockport loses close one to Potsdam

The SUNY Brockport men's ice hockey team hosted Potsdam on Saturday for Military Appreciation Night. Brockport gave up a pair of third period goals, falling to the Bears, 2-1, at home.

Andrew Harley scored the team's only goal of the contest, his 11th of the season. Connor Galloway was credited with the assist on the play, his 15th of the year. Galloway extends his point streak to seven games for the Green and Gold.

Both teams had opportunities in the first, but the score would remain at 0-0 after the opening period.
The Golden Eagles struck first with a goal in the second period. At 4:23 into the second, Andrew Harley sent the puck into the bottom left quadrant of the goal, assisted by Connor Galloway. This would give the squad a 1-0 lead midway through the contest.
Brockport entered the third still up by one goal. However, Potsdam would tie the score at 1-1, 8:47 into the final period. The visiting Bears would complete the comeback with the game-winning goal with just 1:31 left in regulation.

Looking for an extra skater in the final moments, Brockport pulled the goalie with 47 seconds left. Unable to find the equalizer, the match ended with a 2-1 score in Potsdam's favor.

Nolan Egbert spent 59:13 in between the pipes tonight making 39 total saves and allowing two goals. The Golden Eagles are now 8-12 overall and 3-8 in the conference.
