Oswego, NY-The Oswego State Lakers faced one of their toughest tests of the year in their home opener against the Hobart Statesmen. Despite their best efforts, the Lakers fell to the Statesmen 3-1 inside the Deb.
It did not start off ideal for the Lakers. A shot from Jonah Alexander on a first period power play was saved by starting goalie Eric Green, but an unlucky tip from Quinn Warmuth’s skate in front of the goal would lead to Hobart’s first goal of the game. It wouldn’t be until the second period when Hobart would score again, with Jonah Alexander setting up Dan Sliney for a shot that would get around Eric Green. Hobart’s last goal would come right after the puck dropped for the third period, with Chase Bell scoring. PA Martineau was credited with the assist.
For Oswego, their lone goal of the game came eight minutes into the third period. Jackson Arcan and Travis Broughman set up Troy Robillard, who was able to knock a chip shot around Hobart’s star goalie Liam Lascelle to prevent a shut-out. The Lakers came close to putting more points on the board, but it was not meant to be. The Oswego goal was the final goal of the game, and Hobart held off a strong third period from Oswego to take the win.
The boys will get no time off, as they prepare to head south to Elmira to play in their first road game of the year. Tonight’s game will be broadcast on WNYO, make sure to tune in!
