FSU, Chatham play to tie

Chatham’s Chris Lutz scored with 1:47 left in regulation in an eventual 2-2 men’s hockey tie Saturday night with Fredonia (2-2-1) at the Steele Hall Ice Arena.

The Cougars (0-3-1) pulled their goaltender in favor of an extra attacker before Lutz put home a loose puck to the left of Blue Devil senior goaltender Nick Harper.

Until Lutz scored, Blue Devil freshman winger Colin Valentine was in line for the game-winning goal. His shot off a goal-crease scramble put Fredonia on top, 2-1, at 11:39 of the third period. It was Valentine’s first collegiate goal.

After a scoreless first period, the teams traded goals in the second. Johan Allingmon scored for the Cougars at 10:48 before freshman center Josh Biasillo knotted it up at 1-1 with his second goal of the season at 17:17. His shot from the right of the crease came after a point shot by sophomore defenseman Brandon Spoognardi which freshman winger Victor Tracy deflected in front of the net.

Chatham goaltender Matt Calas made 59 saves to earn the No. 1 star, Valentine earned the No. 2, and Lutz the No. 3.

Harper finished with 26 saves in the Fredonia net.
