CANTON -- The SUNY Canton men’s ice hockey team dominated the Canisius College Golden Griffins Friday night in a convincing 7-1 win.

The Roos were playing their first home game since the end of November as they moved to 22-2-3 overall and 5-2 in the Eastern Collegiate Hockey League.

SUNY Canton outshot the Griffs 58-22 including an 18-6 advantage in the first period as they built a 3-0 lead.

The advantage swelled to 6-0 before Canisius finally got on the board late in the second period.

Freshman forward Dave Schneider (Indianapolis, Ind.) netted three goals for his third hat trick of the season and freshman goalie Morgan Barr (Almonte, Ontario) easily turned aside 22 of the 23 shots he faced.

Freshman defenseman Sean Gallagher (Sandwich, Mass.), freshman defenseman J.R. Lafferty (Williamstown, N.J.), freshman forward Thomas Freeman (Rancho Cucamonga, Calif.), and senior forward Rob Liggio (Canton, N.Y.) also scored for the Roos and Corey Frizell (Orleans, Ontario) added two assists.

The Roos play their final five regular season game at home starting next weekend with games against Niagara University on Feb. 3 and 4 and a single game with the University of Rochester on Feb. 5.
