Roos' Hockey, Hoop Scoring Leaders Honored
CANTON – Jesse Farabee, a junior on the men’s hockey team, and Joseph Werner, a junior on the men’s basketball team, have been named this week’s Roos of the Week.
Farabee continued his impressive
play posting three goals and two assists in a pair of SUNY Canton wins last week. The junior opened the week with two goals and an assist in a 5-3 road win at SUNY Potsdam on Tuesday. He gave the Roos a 2-1 lead finding the back of the net with 13 seconds left in the first period on the power play.
Farabee then scored 5:18 into the second period to extend the lead to 3-1 and had an assist on the eventual game-winner at 1:21 of the third period. On Friday in a 4-3 road win at Fredonia he lit the lamp again on the power play at 4:38 of the second to give Canton a 3-2 lead. He also assisted the team’s second goal which broke a 1-1 tie. Farabee leads the team in goals (12), power play goals (8) and is tied for game-winners (2). Through games played on January 16th he was ranked second in power play goals (7) and tied for seventh in goals per game (0.85).
Werner had a monster weekend leading the Roos to a NAC sweep v. Maine Presque Isle as he averaged 16.5 points, 14.0 rebounds and 2.0 assists per game while shooting nearly 62 percent from the field. The junior posted game and career-highs of 25 points and 21 rebounds including 11 offensive rebounds to go with two steals in a 77-75 double overtime win v. the Owls on Friday. He went 12-for-19 from the field and the win improved the Roos to 3-0 in OT games this season, all of which have come in league play. Werner followed that up by stuffing the stat sheet with eight points, seven rebounds and team-highs of four assists and two steals in just 21 minutes of action in an 85-67 victory on Saturday.
