FREDONIA, NY--Buffalo State (12-11-2/6-7-1) defeated Fredonia (12-9-4/5-7-2), 6-4, tonight at Steele Hall to clinch the fourth seed in the SUNYAC playoffs and the right to host the first home playoff game in the program's history.

Paul Michael Rivest (Whitby, ON/Henry Street) and Michael DeMarco (Niagara Falls, NY/Niagara Falls) chipped in two assists apiece.

Fredonia took its second lead of the game at 2-1 early in the second period, but Buffalo State answered just 1:15 later to even the score. The Bengals would never trail again, scoring three more second-period goals to take a 5-3 advantage into the final frame. After the Blue Devils cut the lead to one 3:52 into the period, Buffalo State added another insurance marker before the halfway point of the period.
