JAMESTOWN, N.Y. -- Fredonia State completed its weekend sweep of Wentworth with a 7-2 win Sunday afternoon at the Jamestown Savings Bank Ice Arena.
The Blue Devils (7-5-3) never trailed in either of the two weekend games -- including an 8-1 win Saturday night at Steele Hall -- and outshot Wentworth, 86-42, in the two games.
Twelve Blue Devils earned at least one point with five having having two or more, led by freshman Steve Rizer (Smithtown), with one goal and two assists. Rizer also had two goals in Sataurday's win. Kevin Amborski (Bloomfield) made 18 saves.

The teams traded goals in the second period. Rizer made it 4-0 Fredonia State with his fifth goal of the season, and the third in two days, at 10:27. Wentworth’s Rob Pagani (Spencerport) ended Amborski’s shutout bid with an unassisted goal at 15:59.
Pat Capella (Syracuse) scored a short-handed goal :59 seconds into the third period, while Steve Albert (Port Huron, Mich.) tallied on a power play at 7:26. Andrew Hess (Bowling Green, Ohio) closed the Fredonia State scoring with a power-play goal at 11:04.
