The Oswego State men’s and women’s ice hockey teams continue with the non-conference portions of their schedules this weekend, playing two games apiece.
The women’s team travels to Vermont for the Doubletree Ice Hockey Classic, hosted by Saint Michael’s College. Seeing their first action of 2015, Oswego’s women ride in on a 5 game win streak stretching back to November 21st. Sophomore Brianna Rice and a trio of dynamic freshmen, Olivia Ellis, Andrea Noss, and Rachel Lenard will lead the offense for Oswego, who face a Plymouth State team that gives up more than four and a half goals per game. The Lakers will face the Panthers Friday at 4 pm, and the host Purple Knights at 4 pm on Saturday. Both games are only available through Live Stats. WTOP Sports will also be updating Twitter throughout the games.
The men’s team is home for a rare Friday/Sunday pair of games, first hosting Hobart of the ECAC West, and then lining up against Southern New Hampshire University. The Hobart Statesmen present potentially the biggest upset threat for Lakers in their non-conference schedule, coming in with an 8-4 record and big wins against Brockport and Utica, who both drew against the Lakers earlier in the season. On Sunday afternoon the SNHU Penmen come to town. Sitting at 5-7 overall SNHU has dropped three contests against SUNYAC opponents, most recently a 7-1 decision to Fredonia on Tuesday, January 6th. They will face Morrisville before coming to the Marano Campus Center. WTOP will have full Hockey Night In Oswego coverage of the men’s games, with pregame starting 15 minutes before puckdrop. Friday is scheduled for a 7 pm start, Sunday is 2 pm. An online stream is located here.
