Brandon McMartin and Hunter Laslo scored their first career goals while Bryan Carville and Tim Kielich each picked up three assists Friday night, helping The College at Brockport ice hockey team beat Morrisville State College, 4-3, for its first win of the season, and its first in the State University of New York Athletic Conference.

Morrisville scored the first goal of the game late in the first period to take a 1-0 lead to the first break.  Brockport came out firing in the second frame, scoring just 38 seconds into the period.

From the point, Tim Kielich sent a pass to Aidan Verbeke at the right faceoff circle who drew the goalie out of the net, and was able to tuck the puck in the left side of the net.  Carville also earned a helper on the power play goal.

Less than 10 minutes later the Mustangs took a 2-1 but the Golden Eagles responded with two goals less then ninety seconds apart to regain the lead.

Brockport took advantage of another Morrisville penalty at the 15:21 mark.  Sharp passing allowed Zac Sikich to find the back of the net with Kielich and Carville each picked up an assist on the equalizer.

The Golden Eagles scored 90 seconds later as Brandon McMartin lit the lamp for his first career goal with help from David Horan and Matt Meredith.

Brockport took a 3-2 to the second intermission, but the Mustangs would tie it up less than five minutes into the final frame.

Rookie Hunter Laslo scored his first career goal midway thru the period to give Brockport the 4-3 advantage.  Kielich and Carville each picked up an assist.

Cole Burack earned his first win of the season in net.  The sophomore stopped 27 shots and held the Mustangs one-for-three on power play opportunities.

The Golden Eagles held the advantage in shots, 45-27.  Connor Hutchins led all skaters with nine shots followed by Aidan Verbeke and Zac Sikich with six.  Dylan Shapiro won 17 face offs while Hutchins won 16.
