Men's Hockey Game Recaps
Oswego, N.Y. - The Oswego State Lakers welcomed the Geneseo Knights to the Campus Center Ice Arena for some Valentines Day hockey. About 6 minutes into the first period Chris Waterstreet (FR. Forward) took a quick pass from Morgan Bonner (SO. Forward) from the top of the near side circle and beat Geneseo net minder Nick Horrigan (SO. Goalie) for a 1-0 Oswego State lead in the 1st period. Just about two minutes later Zachary Vit (SR. Forward) let a wrist shot go from the point on the power-play through a screen beating Justin Gilbert (SO. Goalie) to tie the game at 1 a piece. Seconds after the Vit goal Ryan Stanimir took a loose puck out in front of the net on the original shot from Matt Solomon (SO. Defesne) beating Gilbert and the Lakers defense to give the Knights a 2-1 lead in the 1st period.
Moments before the 1st period ended Zachary Vit took another shot from the point with the redirect going wide of the net, but with the puck going off the body off the referee David Ripple found the loose puck and just beat Gilbert along the near side post sneaking it past the skate of the Oswego goaltender for a 3-1 Geneseo lead after 20 minutes of play. The Lakers would outshoot the Knights 18-1 but only find the net once on a one-timer from Matt Galati (FR. Forward) with the assists going to Bobby Gertsakis (JR. Defense) and Chris Waterstreet to cut the score to 3-2 after two periods of play. Geneseo would stop of a few Oswego State rushes in the 3rd period allowing the Knights to hold onto a 3-2 win and sweep the season series between the Oswego State Lakers.
