  • Repairing the Family
    By Jay Grummel Earlier this month I wrote about fond families, however the holidays are made up of many different types of families. Some will be hostile and dysfunctional or some will be loving and understanding. Whatever your family looks like this season, it’s always nice to read about ones other than your own. So, […]
  • 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 […]

Back and forth battle ends in 4-3 loss for Falcons against Tommies

Bowling Green Hockey had a rough night in the first game against St. Thomas, losing 4-1 via some unlucky situations for the Falcons that the Tommies really capitalized on. 

The second game of the weekend did not end much better. 

Effort for the Falcons was very strong once again, as the orange and brown began the game with a 1-1 tie through one period with the first goal of the year by Gustav Stjernberg, assisted by fellow defenseman Ben Wozney. 

The second period was one of the best periods that Bowling Green has played this year, as both Brody Waters and Quinn Emerson scored goals very quickly off the faceoff, both scoring within 10 seconds of each other, giving Bowling Green a huge bit of momentum heading into the third period with the lead 3-2. 

“It was a good second period and we stayed with it and kept working, it’s just unfortunate the way it ended but that’s sometimes how things go,” said head coach Ty Eigner.

Now if you were unable to be at the game, you are probably wondering what Eigner is referring to when he says “It’s unfortunate the way it ended.” 

Christian Stoever gave up a goal to J.D. Metz in the third minute of the third period off a well set-up offensive scheme from the Tommies to tie the game at 3-3.

Then, in the 17th minute, Stoever decided to leave the crease to head off a puck before a Tommie defenseman could get to it. Stoever skated in front of the circles to either side of him, got his pass to Eric Parker deflected by Quinton Pepper, who seconds later scored the fourth and final goal in the game, squeezing the life out of the Falcons. 

That’s something you do not see very often, a game-winning goal on a stick-handling error in the middle of the ice.

By a goaltender. 

“This was college hockey- sometimes you do good things and things just don’t go your way,” said Eigner. “Hopefully, that will balance itself out moving forward. We are not going to feel sorry for ourselves and try and move forward and get better.”

That will be the mindset the staff will instill in his team this coming week with practice on and all week as preparation begins for Lake Superior State, as more CCHA play occurs next week in Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan.
