  • Review of The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes
    Let’s time-travel to the year 2012 and the world is raving about none other than Katniss Everdeen. I remember being in elementary school, begging my mother to let me dress up as her for my birthday. Now it’s over ten years later and I’m still just as excited for the new movie as I was […]
  • Found Family Books for the Holidays
    The holidays are quickly approaching and for some of us that means seeing our family. However, family has a loose definition. It could mean blood or who you were raised with. It could also mean people you’ve found during your life journey. Either way, the holidays are meant for spending quality time with those you […]

The Falcons started off their regular season schedule by travelling to Troy, New York to take on the Rensselaer PI Engineers in two matches on Oct. 8 and 9.

To start the game, the Falcons jumped out to an early 1-0 lead with a first period power play goal from Nathan Burke.

The team then fell behind early in the third period on two consecutive RPI goals during minutes 2:04 and 5:48 in the period.

The score was evened out only two minutes later by Adam Conquest to make the score 2-2. The game ended in a tie after overtime failed to decide the contest.

BGSU goaltender Zack Rose received the draw after allowing only two goals on 26 shots.

The two teams returned to the ice on the next day, where the Falcons struck early once again, with a goal from sophomore Ethan Scardina just over five and a half minutes into the game.

RPI tied the game at the 10:23 mark in the first with a power play goal courtesy of a slashing penalty from Falcon forward Sam Craggs.

Burke struck in this game as well, scoring with 2:03 left in the second period to put BG back on top. But RPI tied the game in the third, sending the teams to overtime for the second consecutive game.

Burke was the Falcons’ hero of the night after he scored the game-winning goal, his second goal of the night, just under two minutes into the overtime period.

RPI has historically had a strong hockey program, with two national titles and nine NCAA tournament appearances. Time will tell if this strong early season showing against a formidable opponent will translate to prolonged success for this Falcon team as we head into conference play soon.
