Third period has Eagles soaring over Morrisville State

MORRISVILLE, N.Y. - Visiting Elmira College Soaring Eagles posted a five goal third period to hand host Morrisville State College a 8-5 loss Friday night in Morrisville.

Morrisville State drops to 1-13-2 overall, while Elmira pulls to 6-9.

Elmira took a 3-1 lead midway through the second period before Mike Dolman (Hawthorne, NJ) posted a power play tally, cutting it to a one goal contest and igniting the Mustang offensive attack.

In the third, Steve Dol (Ingersoll, Ontario) added Morrisville State’s third power play score, tying the game at three, and less than a minute later, James Jarvis (Pickering, Ontario) added another tally, as the Mustangs took the lead for the first time of the night 8:03 into the final stanza.
