No. 2 Men's Ice Hockey Shuts Out Brockport, 4-0, For Ninth-Consecutive Win

GENESEO, N.Y. – SUNY Geneseo junior forward Conlan Keenan notched two goals and an assist, including the 100th point of his career, to lead the No. 2 Knights to a 4-0 victory over visiting Brockport in State University of New York Athletic Conference (SUNYAC) men's ice hockey, Friday. 

Geneseo (12-1-1, 7-1-1 SUNYAC) established a program record with its ninth-consecutive win. 

HOW IT HAPPENED 

  • Junior forward Andrew Romano dug a puck off the boards behind the Golden Eagle net and flipped it to the low slot for a Keenan one-timer inside the left post with 1:44 left in the first period. 
  • The Knights took a 3-0 lead with two goals in a two-minute stretch of the second period. Senior forward Arthur Gordon scored on a glove-side-high wrist shot from the top of the left face-off circle at 7:38 before junior forward David Szmyd finished a Geneseo rush off a short feed in front from Keenan at 5:38. 
  • Keenan cleaned up a lose puck in front of the Brockport net for his second power-play tally of the game to put the Knights up 4-0 with 11:32 left in the third period.
