The SFU ice hockey club team failed to pick up a much-needed win Jan. 28 in Olean, New York, falling to Alfred State, 3-2.

SFU entered the game looking to close in on a playoff berth.

Andrew Ebert scored both of his team’s goals in the loss.

Ebert’s first goal came in the second period on a penalty shot after he was tripped on a breakaway. In the third period, he sniped a shot from just inside the blue line that found the net.

“I just saw an opportunity and seized it,” said Ebert. “Hockey is such a fast-paced sport that you really have to trust your instincts and just go for it.

“No room for hesitation.”

Alfred State struck once in the second and twice in the third, netting the game-winning goal with under three minutes to play.

SFU dressed just nine skaters against Alfred State, which boasted a full 20-man roster.

“I am very proud of the way the team played,” said head coach David Pyro. “They kept it an interesting game until the very end, while being heavily outnumbered.

“That is definitely not an easy thing to do.”
