The Oswego State men’s hockey team won their first game of the season against Elmira Saturday night. The Lakers’ record improves to 1-0-0 while the Soaring Eagles fall to 1-1-0.
Before the game started, Mary Gosek’s children dropped the ceremonial puck in honor of her and everyone fighting cancer.
Elmira got on the board first with goals from Nick Ford and Anthony Perrucci. However, that’s all the Soaring Eagles were able to do. The Lakers scored four unanswered goals, including three from Josh Zizek and one from David Ferreira to cement the victory.
Lakers’ netminder David Richer made 30 saves in his Laker debut.
Oswego is back in action on Sunday when they travel to face No. 9/10 Hobart at 4 p.m..
