Oswego Sweeps SUNYAC Weekly Awards

The State University of New York Athletic Conference (SUNYAC) announced their weekly awards and recieving them are all apart of the Oswego State Lakers. The Lakers (4-0 in Conference, 5-1 overall) swept the first two weekends of their SUNYAC schedule against the two Western New York Teams (Buffalo State, Fredonia) and the sweep of the North Country against Potsdam and arch-rival Plattsburgh. Oswego started the weekend in the North Country with a convincing 8-1 win over the Potsdam Bears. The following night saw the Lakers in the Ronald B Stafford Ice Arena to take on the defending SUNYAC Champion Plattsburgh Cardinals. For the first time since November 11, 2005, Oswego came into Plattsburgh and knocked-off the Cardinals by the score of 5-2.

Eric Selleck was named SUNYAC Player of the Week for his three goal, four assist performance this past weekend.
Kyle Gunn-Taylor was named conference goaltender of the week as he picked up a pair of victories in his first action as a Laker. Gunn-Taylor stopped 56 of the 59 shots he saw while filling in for starter Paul Beckwith, who stayed in Central New York  over the weekend with an illness. Freshman Jon Whitelaw tallied his first three collegiate goals during the road trip and also recorded an assist. Two of his goals came in Saturday's 5-2 victory over Plattsburgh, which snapped a 10-game winless streak in the rivalry series for the Lakers.

Next weekend sees the Lakers head off to Cortland on Friday night to continue their winning ways in the SUNYAC standings. Saturday night sees Oswego back at the Campus Center Ice Arena to play host to the Utica Pioneers.
