Comeback by Seahawks falls short at Geneseo

GENESEO, N.Y. -- The Geneseo men's hockey team scored three times in the third period, holding off a valiant comeback effort by Salve Regina to capture a 7-4 win on Friday night.

Geneseo took a 2-0 lead after one period on goals by junior Ryan Bulach and Iwamoto in front of the net and extended their lead to 4-0 just 2:12 into the second frame as senior Stefan Decosse scored at the 57 second mark and Vit added the fourth goal on a pretty pass play from Iwamoto and senior Jimmy Powers.

The Seahawks rallied for a furious come back, tying the game by the end of the second period as they scored a power play goal at the 7:01 mark and then netted three straight scores during a five-minute major extra man situation.

In the third period, de Jersey scored at the 1:14 mark on a wrist shot from the top of the left circle, sophomore Rich Manley added a goal in the crease at 9:09 and junior Corbin Rosmarin won a faceoff and scored through the five-hole at 14:47 for an unassisted tally.
