The club hockey team defeated C.W. Post University 6-2 in Saturday’s Greek game, exacting revenge for its elimination at the GNCHC conference playoffs last year.

The Bison started off aggressively and scored two early goals. Although they gave one up late in the first period, they added to their lead to make it 5-2 after two periods. The Bison scored their sixth goal in the third period to silence the Ocelots.

Jeff Sowell ’12 led the team with four goals and one assist. Kip Jennings ’13 finished with a goal and two assists, and Connor Curry ’11 added a goal. Goalie John Chestnut ’14 preformed well, allowing only two goals despite multiple power plays by C.W. Post.

“Overall we were pleased with our effort, and we look to keep the momentum for our two home games next weekend against West Chester and Scranton,” Sowell said.

In addition to Sowell’s performance, teammate Connor Curry ’11 lauded the performance of John Carpenter ’11. “[Carpenter] laid a flurry of big hits throughout the game, which helped spark our team,” he said.

The Greek game is an annual tradition for the University, with three sororities and two fraternities in attendance. Many youth teams attended the game as well, and all of the proceeds from tickets were donated to Susquehanna Valley Youth Hockey League.

The two remaining games of the season are both at home for the Bison, 4:15 p.m. this Saturday against Scranton and 4:15 p.m. Sunday against West Chester.
