Third Times the Charm... Oswego and Elmira for the Pathfinder Title
The history of the Pathfinder Bank Classic is short but this tournament has turned out two of the last three National Champions as Oswego (2007) and St. Norbert (2008) won the Classic title on their way to win National Championships. Last year, Oswego did infact win their second Pathfinder title last season with a 5-2 victory over Augsburg. Garren Reisweber was named Pathfinder Classic MVP for his performance over the two games played.
Tonight's matchup against Elmira is the third time these two programs have met this season. In the season opener back on October 23rd, Oswego beat up the Soaring Eagles 7-2. But Elmira would get the last laugh and give Oswego their only loss on the season to this point by defeating the Lakers 2-1 the following night in Elmira.
The consolation game in this year's edition of the Pathfinder Bank Oswego Hockey Classic features the Connecticut College Camels and the Milwaukee School of Engineering Raiders. Action starts at the Campus Center at 4:00 pm and the action will be heard on WNYO-FM 88.9 with Tyler Atkinson and Joe Crahan with the call. Then at 7:00 pm, its the game that "is for all the marbles" as Oswego takes on Elmira. Rob Lippolis and Matt Solomon will have the action on WNYO.
