SUNY Oswego overcame an early deficit with five goals in the second period, and the nationally ranked No. 1 Lakers went on to an 8-2 win against host Hamilton College in a non-conference game at Russell Sage Rink on Dec. 11.
Oswego (12-1 overall) started the scoring 13 minutes, 28 seconds into the first period with just six seconds remaining on a five-minute major penalty for boarding called on Chris Lorenc '10. The Continentals (3-3-1) then capitalized after an Oswego player was called for the same infraction less than a minute later. Hamilton scored both its goals during the man-up situation.
Hamilton scored with 3:42 left in the period to tie the score. Andrew White '13 notched his first collegiate goal off assists from Harry Biggs ’10 and Andrew Jelinek '13. With 58 seconds remaining in the power play, Lorenc found the back of the net for his fourth goal this season to put the Continentals up 2-1. Lorenc is tied for the team lead in goals. BJ Lalonde '12 and Jerome Wallace '10 were credited with assists.
The Lakers tied the score on their own power-play goal 1:06 into the second period. Oswego added four more goals in the period for a 6-2 lead. In the third period, the Lakers clinched their victory with two more goals.
Calvin Bartel '13 started in goal for Hamilton and made 25 saves before he was removed late in the second period. Scott Hefferman '11 entered the game and stopped 16 shots in a little more than 23 minutes. Oswego held a 49-23 advantage in shots on goal.
The Continentals return to action on Jan. 2, when they play Wentworth Institute of Technology in the first round of the St. Michael’s College Holiday Classic in South Burlington, Vt.
