The Athletics Department's report on last night's victory....

Senior Todd Sheridan (Edison, NJ) made 17 saves in the third period and The College at Brockport scored three times in the final 20 minutes of the game to lead the Golden Eagles to a 5-2 victory over SUNY Morrisville Friday night in Morrisville.

Brockport (11-9-0 Overall, 5-6 SUNYAC) scored in the first minute of the game to take the early lead as junior Tom Galiani (Lindenhurst, NY) found the back of the net. SUNY Morrisville 5-12, 2-7) answered midway through the period to knot the scored at 1-1.

In the second period, Brockport regained the lead with a power play goal at the 6:50 mark as defenseman Greg Amato (Ocean Gate, NJ) scored his second of the season. With less than a minute to play in the second, Morrisville tied the game again with a power play tally.

In the third period the Brockport offense took advantage of its opportunities with three goals as Adam Shoff (Port Dover, ONT), Ray Tremblay (Peachland, BC) and Brett Jendra (Bolingbrook, IL) each scored goals. The key to the win, however, was the play of Sheridan in the net especially in the third period. The senior stopped all 17 shots in the third as Brockport was outshot 17-13 in the period. He finished with 36 saves for his ninth win of the season and 27th of his career.

Brockport has won five of its last six games and moved into sole possession for fourth place in the SUNYAC standings with the road win.
