BC HIGHLIGHTS & GAME NOTES
- Austin Cangelosi got the Eagles on the board for the first tally of the season in a bit of an unorthodox way: a penalty shot. The Estero, Fla. native drew a call on a run through the crease and tallied BC's first goal of the season on a penalty shot.
- Air Force took the lead with a two-man advantage at 11:28 of the third period thanks to a Ben Kucera power play tally. The Eagles had a late power play opportunity at 17:02 of the third period, but could not convert.
FIRST GOAL (1-0 - BC) SECOND PERIOD - Austin Cangelosi - 14:12 - PENALTY SHOT
- Austin Cangelosi drew a hooking call down the slot yielding a penalty shot at 14:12 of the second period. With the one-on-one opportunity, Cangelosi's quick hands duped Shane Starrett as the senior centerman went right down the chute and beat Air Force's goaltender five-hole.
SECOND GOAL: (1-1 AIR FORCE) SECOND PERIOD - Matt Serratore - 13:45 - EVEN STRENGTH
- The Falcons forced a 2-on-1 in the neutral zone and turned it up ice towards Joe Woll. Matt Serratore had a flank to his right, but deferred the pass and snapped up high past Joe Woll.
THIRD GOAL: (2-1 AIR FORCE) SECOND PERIOD - Ben Kucera - 13:45 - 5-on-3 POWER PLAY GOAL
- Air Force was granted a two-man advantage for 1:22 at the 11:28 mark of the third period and on the ensuing draw, Ben Kucera buried a one-timer pass on the near right post over Woll's outstretched glove.
