Hofstra scored in the first 7 seconds of the game.   The game was close and could gone either way.  Hofstra won 11-9…

It was good to get the first win under their belt.  Hofstra needs to improve if it expects to stay a Top-20 team.  They made many mistakes in the last 5 minutes and could have easily given the game away.  For the first game of the season, this is not so bad.  They simply need to learn how to close-out games.  This will come along as the season goes on…

Lance Yapor quietly had 4 goals.  I hadn’t even realized it until the game was over.   (G) Andrew Gvozden got stronger as the game went on tallying some great saves!

Faceoff man, John Antoniades got stronger and tougher as the game went on.  If you look at the boxscore and see he won 11 of 21 faceoffs, it’s not impressive. But what  is impressive, and comforting going forward, is he had probably lost  5 of the first 7 faceoffs.    So let’s say he won 10 of the final 15 faceoffs. (Of note: he won the opening faceoff of the game and tooks it down to score in the 1st 7 seconds of the game.)

Shout out to someone who was there:  One of the Hofstra players had a one-on-one with the Sacread Heart Goalie. It was tough angle and he “casually” faked up and down … and had a beautiful goal.   It may have been Cory Caputo.  Please let me know. Thanks.
