More news about: Oswego State
  • Result: Oswego 3, Plattsburgh 2
  • Location: Marano Campus Center Arena – Oswego, N.Y.
  • Records: Oswego 19-5-2  |  Plattsburgh 13-12-2
  • Jody Sullivan made the best of a tough situation, as Oswego was down a man due to a trip just over six minutes into the contest.
  • A little more than a minute into the penalty kill, Sullivan was able to steal a puck for a one-on-none situation, scoring the game's first tally while being hooked from behind. Not only did Sullivan beat the Cardinal goalie, he turned the tides to a 4-on-4 and eventual power-play opportunity for the Lakers.
  • The shorthanded goal is Oswego's ninth of the season, giving it sole possession of second place for the most goals of that variety in all of Division III.
  • Oswego was not done on special teams in the opening period, killing off a few more penalties before notching an extra-man tally.
  • Less than a minute into Plattsburgh serving a holding penalty, Travis Broughman was able to pull the puck from a scrum and find Josh Zizek for a wide-open score. Michael Gillespie was also credited with an assist on the Lakers' second goal of the night.
  • Plattsburgh made it a one-goal tilt in the middle period but Oswego came out in the third and pushed it back to two off a Joseph Molinaro score. The even-strength goal came off helpers from Anthony Passero and Derek Brown.
  • The Lakers were poised to make it a three-goal margin just seconds later when Gillespie rifled a shot from the right side but it nicked the Cardinal goalie's shoulder, ricocheted off the crossbar and back into play.
  • Plattsburgh did not let the luck go to waste, taking the ricocheted puck down to its offensive end and scoring to make it a one-goal Laker lead once again.
  • The game would remain that way through the final horn, as Oswego withstood the final 1:26 of an extra Cardinal skater when Plattsburgh chose to pull its netminder.
  • Laker goalie David Richer made 23 saves in the triumph, the power-play unit scored once on three chances and the penalty-kill squad stopped four of Plattsburgh's five opportunities.
