Hofstra Ice Hockey hosted Suffolk County Community College in an exciting match up at their new home rink at Twin Rinks at Eisenhower Park on Saturday, October 18th. The atmosphere was lively as both the Hofstra Dance Team and Hofstra mascot ‘Kate” were in attendance to support the Pride. The home side took an early lead and maintained it, holding a 4-2 lead entering the third period. Suffolk’s depth off the bench proved to be the difference between the sides, and the Sharks came away with a 7-4 victory, following a flurry of goals in the last 10 minutes of play.
