Jimmies men's hockey get revenge in 3-1 win at Stony Brook
The Jimmies outshot the Seawolves 42-36 in the win.
HAUPPAUGE, NY — The No.7-ranked University of Jamestown started their east coast swing with a trip to the team that ended their season last year, the No.22-ranked Stony Brook University. The Jimmies were able to use a third-period goal and a big performance from goalie Brandon Weare to get a 3-1 win over the Seawolves on Friday, Nov. 18, at The Rinx.
“(We had) good defensive structure, just really detailed defensively, blocked a lot of shots, chipped a lot of pucks out, wore down the goal line, grinded them down low,” Jimmies head coach Dean Stork said. “We had a lot of chances, we couldn’t capitalize, but we out-chanced them and finally got three.”
16 seconds after the Jimmies (7-4) had a goal disallowed, they got one that counted when Kole Christensson won a faceoff and played it forward to Carter Johnson who potted one past Seawolves goalie Matvei Kazakov to make it 1-0 with 11:22 to go in the second period.
The Jimmies doubled the lead when Christensson got in on a breakaway and wristed the puck stick side past Kasakov to make it 2-0 with 8:37 to go in the game. It didn’t take long for the Seawoles (9-5) to cut into the lead when Michael Conlin held off the stick check from Mario Decapite and a defender in front of him to snipe one home to make it 2-1 with 8:12 to go in the game.
Late in the third period, the Jimmies’ Greg Susinski took a shot from inside his own zone into the empty net to make it 3-1 with 1.3 seconds to go in the game.
The Jimmies return to the ice at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 19, when they face the University of Delaware.
