Brockport tames the Mustangs

Pray's two goals earned him the fire helmet

The College at Brockport ice hockey team defeated Morrisville State Friday night, by a score of 6-1. With the win, the Golden Eagles move to 13-6-2 overall and 5-5-2 in conference, while the Mustangs fall to 4-14-2 and 2-10-1 in the SUNYAC.

The first period was all Brockport as freshman forward Trevor Pray got the Golden Eagles started, scoring ten minutes into the period with the assist coming from Shane Visnick. Four minutes later it was the Golden Eagles again, this time freshman Mitchell Parsons was the goal scorer, beating the Mustangs netminder through the wickets with the assist to Jordan Renaud. Thirty seconds after the Golden Eagles second goal, Pray was at it again, scoring his fourth of the year and doubling his goals on the season.

The Green and Gold wasted little time in the second as Captain Connor Hutchins buried his sixth of the year six minutes into the period after a cross-crease pass from Ethan Solat. The Golden Eagles continued to pour on the pressure, extending their lead three minutes later as Parsons found Ethan Solat for Brockport's fifth goal of the night. The Mustangs answered 40 seconds later, scoring their first goal on the night on the powerplay to bring the game within four. Brockport outshot the Mustangs 18-6 after two periods.

The Golden Eagles were held off the scoreboard for 15 minutes in the third, the longest they went without a goal all night. Hutchins scored his second goal of the game on the PP, with assists to Hunter Laslo and Jeremy Solat, the goal game with 4:45 remaining in the third. Matthew Schneider picked up his third win of the season with 10 saves.
