Brockport's winning streak ended by Potsdam

The College at Brockport ice hockey team had its program-record, seven-game win streak snapped at home on Saturday. Brockport fell to Potsdam, 4-2, after the visiting Bears netted three goals in the third period.

The Green and Gold move to 12-7 overall and 6-5 in SUNYAC play after splitting the weekend with one win and one loss.

Corey Tam got the action started with a one timer coming right after a face-off in the offensive zone. Doc Gentzler won the puck drop in Ethan Solat's direction, who found Tam for the score. The 1-0 lead would stand until Jeremy Solat scored an unassisted goal later in the period to put Brockport up 2-0. Potsdam got on the board late in the first to make the score read 2-1 at the first intermission.

After a scoreless period in the second, it all came down to the third period. Potsdam scored two quick goals just inside of three minutes left in regulation to take a 3-2 lead. The Golden Eagles pulled the goalie to add an extra skater in the final moments to try and tie it up, but the visiting team found a way to score on the empty net putting the game away.

Senior goaltender Matt Schneider came up with 25 saves on the day, as the team was outshot 29-17 by Potsdam.
