On Saturday, Josepher tallied his second power-play goal of the weekend at 15:53 of the first period versus Geneseo to give the Lakers a 4-0 lead en route to a 10-1 win.

Hare stopped 46 of the 47 shots he faced over the weekend as the second-ranked Lakers notched wins over Brockport and Geneseo. Hare posted his second consecutive shutout with 20 saves against the Golden Eagles in a 2-0 decision. He followed that performance by allowing one goal in a 10-1 win against the Blue Knights. Twelve of Hare’s 26 saves came in the first period as the Lakers built a 4-1 lead at intermission.
