Brockport drops first game of season 2-1 against Oswego
BROCKPORT, NY - The Brockport Golden Eagles fell at home Friday night by a score of 2-1 against the Oswego Lakers. Oswego started very strong, heavily outshooting Brockport in the early stages of the first period. The Lakers finally broke through with a power play goal from Trent Grimshaw to go up 1-0 heading into the first intermission. The offensive struggles and poor discipline continued to plague the Golden Eagles as Oswego scored another goal on the power play to go up 2-0, a slap shot from Rocco Andreacchi. Brockport was able to respond near the end of the second period, as Ryan Romeo converted on a 2 on 1 rush, firing the shot past Oswego goaltender Steven Kozikoski to cut the lead in half. Despite only getting seven shots on goal in the first two periods, Brockport was still in it thanks to goaltender Nolan Egbert.
Both teams traded chances throughout the third period, as both goalies played spectacularly. Despite five total power plays in the game, Brockport failed to connect. Oswego went 2 for 5 on the man advantage, which ended up being the difference, as the Lakers ended Brockport's five game win streak. The Golden Eagles will look to rebound on Saturday night on the road as they take on Cortland.
