TALARICO AND PISCALLI EARN SUNYAC HOCKEY HONORS
SUNY Potsdam men's hockey players Shane Talarico and Billy Piscalli hae been recognized by the State University of New York Athletic Conference for their play last weekend. Talarico is the conference's Goalie of the Week and Pascalli is the Rookie of the Week.
Last Friday night, Talarico entered the game in relief after the Bears lost starter Jon Hall to injury. He responded with 22 saves in a critical 4-3 overtime victory against Brockport. His play earned him the starting nod against No. 14 Geneseo the following night. Talarico stopped 24 Ice Knight shots in a dramatic 4-3 overtime win on Saturday. The victory was the third of his collegiate career and his first as a starting goalie. The junior has posted a 3-3 record, a goals-against-average of 3.95 and a save percentage of .887 this season.
Pascalli had a three-point weekend for the Potsdam. Against the Golden Eagles, he had an assist and scored the game-winning goal 2:17 into overtime to keep the Bears' playoff hopes alive. Against Geneseo, the freshman recorded an assist in Potsdam's first win over a ranked team in four seasons. This year Pascalli is fifth on the team in scoring with seven goals and 10 assists for 17 points. His points are the fourth most from a freshman in the SUNYAC this year.
