MORRISVILLE, N.Y. – The Morrisville State College men’s ice hockey team will take the show on the road Saturday, playing the NCAA match-up against Manhattanville College at the Clinton Arena in a Youth Hockey Organization Fundraiser.

Proceeds from gate receipts, raffles, and auctions will benefit the Clinton Youth Hockey Organization.

Face-off is scheduled for 7 p.m. and admission is $5 per person. Children wearing their youth hockey jersey will be admitted to the contest free of charge.
