This past weekend was filled with both Oswego State Men’s and Women’s ice hockey.
On Friday night, the men’s team was led by the seniors at Morrisville State with Shawn Hulshof, Alex Botten and Matt Galati all contributing goals in the 4-1 win. Playing on their home ice last night, Matt Galati was back at it again as he scored the first goal of the game. That goal led up to the first teddy bear toss in Oswego history and was the first of many for the team as they went on to win 8-1. With the wins, the number one ranked team in the country is now 9-0 overall and 7-0 in the SUNYAC. Their next game will be played in Fredonia on Friday.
On the women’s side, the Lakers played a two game series at home against Canton. Powered by a five goal second period and goals from seven different players, the team rolled to a 10-0 victory Friday night. On Saturday, the women continued their winning streak as senior Alexa Aramburu and junior Olivia Ellis each had a goal and two assists. With the 6-1 victory, the seventh nationally ranked team improves to 11-1 and will take on Hamilton at home on Friday.
