Oswego, NY – The Oswego Clearview hockey team split a pair of squirt games recently against Camillus and Ithaca, according to Oswego Assistant Head Coach Rob Raby.
Oswego, now 4-4 on the season, lost a tough 4-2 game against Camillus at Shove Park, and then traveled to Ithaca the following day and captured a 4-3 victory at The Rink.
“The team played really solid both days,” said Raby. “They continue to work hard and play consistent hockey.”
In the Camillus game, Oswego fell behind 1-0 in the first period, before Nick Burnett tallied a backhanded goal at the 3:29 mark of the second period. Camillus responded with two additional goals in the second period and one early in the third to take a 4-1 lead. Oswego forward Alex Koproski capped off the scoring at 1:24 of the third off an assist by Mason Bricker in the 4-2 loss.
Tyler Wallace had 18 saves in net and continued his strong play on the season despite the loss.
Oswego’s trip to Ithaca the following day led to a 4-3 victory over the Ithaca 3 team. After falling behind 1-0, Oswego’s Jeremy Susino followed in an Andrew Noyes shot on net to tie the game at one apiece. Ithaca went up 2-1 early in the second period, before Spencer Stepien slapped in a shot from his knees off a perfect assist from Jack Stephens to make it 2-2. Oswego added to the scoring early in the third period as Noyes scored from an assist by Stepien. Ithaca would tie it just minutes later, before Burnett scored off of a give and go assist from Koproski to earn the visiting Clearview team the victory.
Wallace had 17 saves against Ithaca in recording his 4th victory of the season.
“Tyler has had a very consistent season,” said Coach Dennis Brady. “He played well against both Camillus and Ithaca, and has been a strong leader of this team.”
According to Raby, the continued strong play of Bryson Bush, Isaiah Raby, Lane Phillips, and Patrick Galvin, helped throughout the weekend.
