Assistant captain Brad Dormiedy netted the first goal of the night in the game's eighth minute with an assist from fellow assistant captain Neil Musselwhite and freshman Tyler Leimbrock. Leimbrock was just one of ten Lakers making their Oswego State debut in the game. A graduating class of 13 players in 2009 opened the door for a wealth of new talent to make an immediate impact for the Lakers in 2009-10, and make an immediate impact they did. Five different newcomers tallied at least one point with Luke Moodie recording the game-winning goal early in the third period.
All three goaltenders on seventh-year coach Ed Gosek's roster saw action, with sophomore Paul Beckwith getting the starting nod. Beckwith stopped seven of eight shots in the first period, senior Kyle Gunn-Taylor stopped four of five shots in the second, and freshman Daniel Jones stopped four of five in the third to pick up the win.
Noticeably absent from the lineup were 2009 SUNYAC Freshman of the Year Eric Selleck and junior Josh Chamberlain.
