The nationally ranked Oswego State men’s hockey team defeated the Canton Kangaroos 3-2 on Saturday night. With the win, the Lakers move to 3-1 overall while the Kangaroos drop to 1-3.
After taking an early lead in the first period off of Josh Zizek’s team leading fourth goal of the season, the Lakers never looked back. The team continued its success on the power play in the second period with AJ D’Orazio scoring the first goal of his young Oswego career. However, Canton would not give up easily as they would pull within one. Just under two minutes later, Lakers’ alternate captain Cameron Berry gave Oswego the insurance goal they were looking for to put them up 3-1.
In goal, Canton’s Austin Washkurak made 37 saves while Oswego’s Cedric Hansen earned his first NCAA win, stopping 20 shots.
Oswego will look to build on their two game winning streak Friday night at 7 pm when they take on Buffalo State at the Marano Campus Center Arena.
