The Golden Eagles close out the fall semester of play with a Friday night home contest against Western New England College who are travelling from Springfield, Massachusetts.
The Golden Bears are 1-7-1. Over those 9 games they have scored 26 goals (2.88/game) and allowed 49 (5.44/game). Their worst defeat was a 12-1 loss to Utica and their lone win occurred last weekend when they beat Salve Regina 5-2 (SR is also 1-7-1).
They are led by Kory Grahl who has 10 points on the season. Leading goal scorer is Rory Hansen who has netted 6 of them. They are not a high scoring team. Of the players on this year’s roster, none had more than Grahl’s 13 points last year (which was second-best on the team), hence their 3-20-2 finish last year.
In goal for the Bears will be Justin Richards who sports an .861 saves percentage and 5.24 GAA. Last year he had an .859 over 17 games.
They should not be taken for granted. When last they faced each other, back in January of this year, Brockport won by a score of 2-1 and it took overtime and a slick wrap-around goal by Ryan Silveira goal to win it.
The game starts at 7:00 PM and can be heard on 89.1 FM and online at www.891thepoint.com (the live stream is operational once again). You can also watch the game online at www.FastHockey.com
