Powered by two goals from Brad Schuler, including the game winner, the Skidmore College hockey team came away with a 4-3 non-league victory Saturday over SUNY Potsdam at the Weibel Avenue Ice Rink.

With the win, the Thoroughbreds even their record at 6-6-2. The Bears drop to 5-8-1 for the season.

Skidmore took a 2-0 lead in the first period, starting with David Dupuis's third goal of the season at 14:25 with assists from Julian Malakorn and Phil Buonocore. Schuler scored his first goal just after a Potsdam penalty expired at 16:54. Jack Even and Brendan Cottam collected the assists.

Even made it 3-0 with a power-play goal from Cottam at 11:50 of the second period.  Potsdam got one back at 17:11 when Kenny Simon scored a power-play goal from Nick Avgerinos and Adam Place.

The Bears eventually tied it 3-3 in the third on a pair of goals by Todd Thomas 22 seconds apart. The first one came at 10:26, followed by the second at 10:48.  Schuler got the game winner on a Cottam assist with 15:09 left in the game.
