review beats headphones Air Force beats Army
Early in the third period, Army tied the game when Tyler Pham scored on a short handed breakaway at 5:24. Later in the period, the Falcons regained the lead when Kyle Haak won an offensive zone faceoff and Dan Bailey took a shot from the left point that found its way through traffic. Bailey’s first career goal put the Falcons up 2 1 with 4:29 left. Air Force was 0 for 2 on the power play while Army was 0 for 3. Neither team scored a power play goal in the series. Shane Starrett made 29 saves in the game including 13 in the first period when the Falcons were outshot, 13 4. Parker Gahagen made 21 for the Black Knights.
“This is a really,
really good Army team, maybe the best they have ever had,” head coach Frank Serratore said. “They are fast, very deliberate and firm in everything they do and they have a very good goalie. They were all over us in the first and we had to weather the storm. Credit Shane Starrett because we could have easily been down two goals early,
but he kept us in it. This was a great road win. Army is going to win a lot of games this season.”
