The recap from the Athletic Department...

The College at Brockport Men's Hockey team hung tough with the No. 2 ranked team in the country, but the Golden Eagles fell to Oswego 2-0 on Friday night at Tuttle North Ice Arena. Jared Lockhurst (Caledon, ONT/Wellington Dukes) stopped 39 shots on the night as Brockport falls to 1-2-0 in the State University of New York Athletic Conference (SUNYAC).

The Golden Eagles opened up the game with a strong defensive presence, holding the Lakers to zero first period goals. In its two previous games this season, Oswego has scored a combined eight goals in the first period en route to 16 goals total in the two contests. The Brockport defense held Oswego to just nine shots in the first period while the Golden Eagle offense put seven shots on Oswego goalie Andrew Hare.

The Lakers came out firing to open the second period, controlling the puck early on. Oswego took advantage of a power play and took a 1-0 lead at the 7:17 mark of the second period. Brockport killed off the other three power plays that Oswego had throughout the game while the Golden Eagles were 0-3 on power plays.

Lockhurst, a freshman, made 20 saves in the second period and 10 more in the third to continue his run of solid play to open his Brockport career. Oswego netted its second goal midway through the third period to take the victory.

Brockport returns to action tomorrow night for its fourth straight SUNYAC matchup as the Golden Eagles take on Cortland at 7:00 pm in Tuttle North Ice Arena.
