Brockport sets program record with 7th straight win

The College at Brockport ice hockey team set a new program record with its seventh win in a row Friday night, defeating Plattsburgh 4-1 at home. Brockport, on its longest win streak in program history, is now 12-6 overall and 6-4 in SUNYAC play.

Ryan Romeo put the Green and Gold on the board first with a one-timer, rocket on the power play. Connor Hutchins assisted on the first goal of the contest, as Brockport went up 1-0 early in the first.

Plattsburgh responded with a power play score of its own just minutes later to tie the game up at 1-1. However, the Golden Eagles would have the perfect response playing down a skater. Danny Rock got Jordan Renaud the puck for the short-handed goal to take the lead back at 2-1.

Entering the second period up by a goal and on the power play once again, Romeo found the back of the net for another score to put Brockport up 3-1 in the first minute of the second. Anthony Hora and Connor Hutchins were credited with assists.

In desperation in the final minutes of the third period, Plattsburgh pulled the goalie to add a skater. Jake Colosanti took advantage of the empty net with the team's third power play goal of the evening with assists from Ethan Solat and Corey Tam. The final score of the night put the game away, as Brockport took the 4-1 win over its SUNYAC opponent.

Senior goaltender Matt Schneider made 24 saves in the contest, playing the full 60 minutes for the Green and Gold. Ryan Romeo tallied two goals on three shots in the game. Colosanti and Renaud each found the back of the net once for the team.

Connor Hutchins made two assists in the win to lead the team. Tam, Solat, Rock, and Hora all registered one assist to aid Brockport's efforts. The team won the faceoff battle, 34-28, on the night and went 3-for-8 on the power play.
