Highlights & scores: hardwood & hockey action

CANTON, N.Y. (WWNY) - A trip to the men’s ECAC championship game was on the line for the Skating Saints of St. Lawrence Thursday.

St. Lawrence hosted Colgate at Appleton Arena for the semifinal matchup.

First period: St. Lawrence strikes when Tucker McIntosh takes the feed and scores. Saints on top 1-0.

Second period: Saints down 2-1 when Cameron Buhl scores on the power play, tying the game at 2.

Third period: Saints down 3-2 when Dylan Woolf scores off the faceoff, tying the game at 3.

A little over a minute later, the Saints take the lead when McIntosh scores his second goal of the game. Saints on top 4-3.

This game goes to overtime tied at 4, where Buhl scores his second goal of the game to give St. Lawrence a 5-4 win and a trip to the ECAC title game on Saturday against Quinnipiac.

“When you’re going into overtime it’s go until you win,” Saints coach Brent Brekke said. “You don’t know how long it’s going to go so that was the one thing we had in the back of our mind that, you know, you don’t want to get too extended and hopefully you get one early. Obviously, Cam Buhl makes a real skilled play and poised play to hold on to it and then jam it.”
