The Brockport men’s ice hockey team ended its 2017-2018 season with three consecutive losses, including its final game to the eighth-ranked Geneseo by a score of 1-0. They finished with a record of 11-13-1 and 5-10-1 in the conference; it was the program’s second consecutive season with fewer wins than losses and the third straight year they finished with exactly 11 wins. They missed a spot in the playoffs by three points.
The Golden Eagles seem to be singing a different tune in the 2018-2019 season. With a 4-2 victory over Buffalo, Brockport equaled its win total of 11 in just the 17th game of the season, with a month remaining in the regular season.
“The players worked extremely hard in the weight room this offseason,” head coach Brian said on the team’s website prior to the start of the season. “We feel we’re as strong on the ice as we’ve ever been, combined that with our overall team quickness, we should compete with every team on our schedule.”
Brockport was in sixth in the conference, holding what would be the final playoff spot, as of January 23, even though they defeated Buffalo, the team in front of them, twice. Brockport is 3-4-2 in the conference, with losses to Fredonia, Oswego, and Geneseo, the top three teams in the conference.
