The Lakers opened the scoring at 12:20 of the first period, but the Ice Knights answered 1:14 later when sophomore Zachary Vit (pictured left) scored the first of his two goals on the night from classmate Rich Manley and junior Corbin Rosmarin. Oswego took a 2-1 lead into the first intermission with a four-on-four goal at 16:13 just after Geneseo failed to score on a 2-on-1 opportunity. In the second period, Oswego took a two-goal lead when a penalized player jumped out of the box and went in on a breakaway to score against Geneseo junior netminder Adrian Rubeniuk. Geneseo would pull within a goal after an Oswego turnover in the neutral zone when Rosmarin fed Vit for a wrist shot from the slot at 6:14. Rubeniuk made 46 saves in nets as Oswego won the shot battle, 50-22. Geneseo falls to 2-2-0 overall and 2-1-0 in SUNYAC and travel to Cortland on Saturday.
