From St. Lawrence University Sports Information
Freshman goaltender Eric Hayton had the busiest night for a Saint goaltender since January of 2012, but couldn't steal at least a tie with nationally fourth-ranked Ferris State as sophomore wing Chad McDonald scored his third goal of the season 1:39 into overtime to give the Bulldogs a 3-2 win in the Saints home opener at Appleton Arena Friday night.   McDonald's goal came just after the Saints had killed off a Ferris State power play which had carried over into the extra period from the third. St. Lawrence could not get the puck out of its zone and McDonald took a feed from defenseman Brandon Anselmi, cut in front and scored his third of the year and the game winner to bump the Bulldogs to 2-0-0 on the young season   The Saints 1-2-0, got a huge game from Hayton, who made 44 saves, and the Saints were able to stay with the Bulldogs in a game which was end-to-end from start to finish.  More Details

From SUNY Canton Sports Information
The SUNY Canton men’s soccer team used three early first half scores to defeat visiting Elmira College 4-1 at home.  The win improves the Roos to 9-4-1 and 6-1-1 in their last eight games.  Sixteen minutes into the contest the Roos had the first good scoring opportunity as Abdulai Jagana (Bronx, NY) played a through ball up the middle to Devin Gruneisen (Potsdam, NY). Gruneisen kicked the ball just wide of the left post as Elmira goalkeeper Jordan Dougherty came charging out of goal.  Three minutes later the Roos got on the board first on an own goal by Elmira. Two minutes later the Roos were on the attack again on a beautiful through ball from Hunter Mowery (Elizabethtown, NY) up the middle to Gruneisen who went in on a breakaway. He hit the ball firmly but it went well high of his intended target.  At the 25:22 mark SUNY Canton made it 2-0 on a goal from Jagana. SUNY Canton made it 3-1 with 2:54 remaining as Gruneisen broke through. Josh Geller (Monroe, NY) made an on point pass in tight quarters to Tyler Gallagher (Potsdam, NY) at the top left of the 18-yard box. Gallagher ripped a shot into the right corner as Dougherty made a great diving save to his left. Gruneisen was in the right spot at the top of the 8-yard box striking home his third goal of the season. Midway through the second half, the Roos had a defensive breakdown as Ryan Bertsch was left open at the top of the 18 missing just outside the left post.  With just over seven minutes remaining the Roos used a quick counterattack to add a fourth score. Jordan Barriere (Chazy, NY) fed a ball up the right sideline to Geller. He quickly found Matt Malchoff (Clyde, NY) to his left. Malchoff hit a perfect ball to the top left of the 18 where Escalante hit a one-timer into the left corner of the net for his 15th goal of the season.

SUNY Canton junior golfer Zach Meade (Tupper Lake, NY) is coming back to the North Country as a National Champion! Meade shot a round of 2-under par 70 in the final round to finish three strokes better than any other competitor in the 130 golfer field at the 2014 United States Collegiate Athletic Association (USCAA) National Championships on Tuesday at the Penn State Blue Course.  The Tupper Lake native was just one of two players to shoot under par on the day as he overcame a two stroke deficit after day one to become the first Roo to win a four-year individual national championship. After shooting 2-under par 34 on the front nine Meade finished the back nine at even par 36 and nearly holed out for double eagle on the par 5, 15th.  He would finish a tap in for eagle that would prove crucial down the stretch run. As a result of the first place finish Meade has been named a USCAA First Team All-American for the second consecutive year after his seventh place finish a season ago.  Also for SUNY Canton, Nolan Reid (Champlain, NY) improved three strokes in the final round to shoot a 77 and tie for 17th place individually. Carter Brock (Albany, NY) continued his strong freshman year carding an 82 on Tuesday to finish tied for 53rd individually. Connor Gray (Clayton, NY) posted a round of 89 in the final round good for a 53rd place showing. Matthew Russell (Cranberry Lake, NY) was the only other Roo to finish both rounds tallying an 87 (72nd place) as Steve McCorduck (Oriskany, NY) was forced to withdraw.  The Roos lowered their team total six strokes in the final round to shoot a tournament total of 638 strokes good for fifth place out of 22 teams. Daemen College won their third consecutive USCAA national championship shooting a 608 to edge second place Rochester College by seven strokes. SUNY Delhi (623) and Cleary University (624) rounded out the top four.  Nolan Reid and Matthew Russell earned a spot on the USCAA All-Academic Team for being in sophomore standing or better with a cumulative grade point average of 3.50 or higher.  This completes the 2014 season for the SUNY Canton men’s golf team.
