The third annual North Country Tip Off Basketball Tournament will be held October 29-30 at Clarkson University. "Most larger cities host a preseason basketball tournament and the North Country didn't have one," said tournament founder Brad Dufrane. He partnered with then-Clarkson Women's  head basketball coach John Hampton on the facilities. Some of the proceeds go to the Clarkson Women's program. Girls and boys teams from 5th to 12th grade are welcome. All teams are guaranteed to play at least three games with championships in each bracket. Last year's tournament featured several teams from the North Country, Canada, Syracuse and Rochester. Dufrane noted the tournament is planned around fall sports schedules.  "You want your players to get ready for the season, but they still have football or soccer. We work around those games and practices so teams can still participate. For additional information, contact Brad Dufrane at 518-569-3574, or visit www.syracusehoops.netFlyer

Men's Hockey: St. Lawrence  Falls To Penn State 4-2


Senior Drew Smolcynski gave the No. 16 St. Lawrence men's hockey team an early lead at Penn State, but the Nittany Lions rallied back for three unanswered goals en route to an eventual 4-2 win in the season opener for both teams in State College, Pa. Penn State put pressure on the Saints early, forcing junior goaltender Kyle Hayton to make a number of saves in close including one late in the first Nittany Lion power play on a two-on-one break into the zone. After a successful kill, St. Lawrence responded with some offensive pressure and eventually Smolcynski broke through for the first goal of the game and of the 2016-17 season for the Saints. Jacob Pritchard controlled the puck along the wall on the red line and saucered a pass to the Hatfield, Pa. native as he cut across the crease. Smolcynski backhanded a shot high stick side to beat Peyton Jones for a 1-0 lead for the visitors. But the Saints ended up taking four penalties in the first, swinging momentum towards the Nittany Lions who capitalized and took a 2-1 lead heading in to the first intermission. "We got ourselves in some difficulty early on with penalties and I think it taxed the guys that were members of our power play unit," head coach Mark Morris said. "We're not at the stage where we can afford to spend so much time in the penalty box and expect the guys that we need to score goals to have the energy to produce." Penn State seniors Dylan Richard and David Thompson scored in a span of three and a half minutes in the middle of the first period to erase the Saints lead, while sophomore Andrew Sturtz's goal on a rebound late in the middle frame proved to be the game winner for the Nittany Lions. Trailing 3-1 early in the third period the Saints got one back with Michael Laidley and Nolan Gluchowski teaming up to make it 3-2 in favor of the home team. Gluchowski won a battle on the wall and hit Laidley in the slot where the Little Current, Ontario, native fired a shot bar down behind Jones for his first of the year. The Saints were unable to fully close the gap, however, and Blake Gober iced the game with an empty-net goal for Penn State with 13 seconds remaining.
