HOW IT HAPPENED

  • The Cougars doubled up on a shot from the left slot right before the midway point of the frame.
  • Another Buffalo State penalty led to a power-play goal for Chatham, with Caden Smith knocking a rebound past Gross.
  • The Cougars took advantage of a misplay behind the net by Gross, leading to an open goal and an easy goal by Andrew Warhoftig with 43 seconds remaining.
  • McCosh got the Bengals on the board early in the second period, tapping in the rebound after his initial shot was saved.
  • Figueroa cut the deficit to two less than 90 seconds later, off assists from Ryan Leonard (Duxbury, MA/Lindenwood University) and Drayton Todoroff (Jackson, MI/Amarillo Wranglers).
  • Chatham scored again to restore a three-goal advantage, but McCosh’s second goal of the night gave the Bengals hope heading into the third period down just 5-3.
  • The Cougars scored once again to open the third period, before Glamos continued his torrid stretch with a goal to make it 6-4 on the power play.
  • Chatham added an insurance goal, as well as an empty-net goal to thwart any opportunity for a Buffalo State comeback and complete the scoring.
