For all of the hockey fans in Oswego County, your months-long wait is finally at it’s end. Laker hockey returns this weekend with exhibition games for both the men’s and women’s programs. on Saturday the women’s team faces the Toronto Midget Arrows and are looking to improve upon last year’s successful regular season that saw them knocked out of the ECAC West Championship chase in the first round.
The men might have an even more bitter taste in their mouth after last season which they’ll begin to cure on Saturday against the CCHL all-graduate team. They went 21-6-1 en route to the first overall seed in the conference…only to lose at home to Plattsburgh in the SUNYAC Championship. From there they went on to get knocked out of the NCAA tournament in the first round by Hamilton. The games start at 3 and 7 p.m. respectively.
