No. 2 Men's Ice Hockey Shuts Out No. 6 Oswego, 3-0

GENESEO, N.Y. – SUNY Geneseo sophomore forward Dan Bosio scored two goals to lead the No. 2 Knights to a 3-0 victory over No. 6 Oswego in State University of New York Athletic Conference (SUNYAC) men's ice hockey, Saturday. 

Geneseo (11-1-1, 6-1-1 SUNYAC) tied a program record with its eighth-consecutive win. It was also the 200th career victory for head coach Chris Schultz. 

HOW IT HAPPENED 

  • Geneseo got on the board 1:43 into the game following an Oswego checking from behind penalty. Senior defenseman Duggie Lagrone took a feed from junior forward Andrew Romano at the point and wristed a shot on goal that Bosio tipped past Laker goalie David Richer. 
  • Bosio gave the Knights' a 2-0 lead with 3:37 left in the second period. Senior forward Arthur Gordon took a drop pass from first-year forward Henry Cleghorn at the blue line on a right-wing rush and sent a cross-ice feed to Bosio in the low-left slot for a scoring wrist shot inside the left post. 
  • Geneseo's final goal came with 6:33 left in regulation after Gordon sent a pass from the point to senior forward Anthony Marra on the left post. Marra popped his own rebound over Richer's pads to complete the victory. 

GAME NOTES 

  • Senior goalie Devin McDonald totaled 17 saves for his Division III-best sixth shutout of the season while adding to his program record with the 12th of his career. 
  • Geneseo shutout Oswego for the first time in 93 all-time meetings dating back to their first meeting in 1977. 
  • Bosio logged the first two-goal game of his collegiate career and also his first multi-point outing since totaling a goal and two assists in last year's 4-2 victory at Hobart in the NCAA Division III Tournament first-round. 
  • Romano leads Divison III with 19 assists this season.
