Mark it on the calendars. Cortland Red Dragons vs Oswego Lakers on Saturday October 22nd, 2011, at 4PM in Glastonbury, CT's Z-Rink. In an effort to make the ECRHA more marketable the league has asked Cortland and Oswego to participate in a "Feature Game". Each weekend event during the ECRHA's season has two to three Feature Games. Cortland's first shot at a Feature Game will come in their first regular season event in three weeks. This is a huge chance for the Red Dragons to showcase their talent on the rink to the nation. The biggest reason for Cortland and Oswego to be pitted against each other in the "Feature Game" is the sibling rivalry between Cortland's President Tommy Farr and Oswego's President Billy Farr. Cortland assistant captain Mike Barbariantz will face off against his brother, Oswego defenseman Tyler Barbariantz.
The "Feature Game" will have a feel of a National Championship game, according to league sources. The teams will have music play throughout warm-ups, the starting line-ups will be announced and the National Anthem will be played to kick off the game. Goals and assists will be announced along with music in between periods and whistles.
The biggest rivalry in Division III will take the biggest stage on October 22nd at 4PM. Come out and support your Red Dragons as they take the biggest stage in the ECRHA.
