  • My Fiction Icks
    By Jay Grummel When you read as much as I do you start to notice common things in fiction that make you annoyed, upset  or even want to put down the book completely. I have a bad habit of not giving books much of a chance when they use some of these personal ‘icks’. However, […]
  • Poetry for Fall
    By Jay Grummel Poetry has a way of connecting us to the external and internal world. In poetry it is easier to feel a season and truly feel a piece due to this. Poetry has a subtle way of making the readers immersed into the world of the poem. With the air getting colder and […]

BGSU hockey travels to Michigan Tech for final 2013 WCHA series

The BG hockey team will travel to Houghton, Mich., this weekend to face the Michigan Technological University Huskies.

Both games will start at 7:07 p.m. on Friday and Saturday.

Michigan Tech comes into the series with an overall record of 6-8-4 and 4-3-3 in WCHA play. The Huskies are tied for fourth place in the WCHA with BG with 11 league points.

The weekend series between the Falcons and Huskies will be the 13th and 14th time these two teams will face each other. Michigan Tech holds a 7-4-1 all-time record against BG. The Falcons are 1-4-1 all-time against the Huskies away from the BGSU Ice Arena.

The Huskies have a five-game unbeaten streak and are 2-0-3 in their last five games. They are 4-1-2 on home ice so far this season, while BG is 1-6-2 on the road.

“They’re a really good team,” said head coach Chris Bergeron. “They really like forwards, their goaltending is solid, and their defense is evolving. They’re as deep a group of forwards we’ve played this year. We have to defend better than we’ve been defending.”

BG defeated the University of Alabama-Huntsville Chargers last Friday night 3-0 at the BG Ice Arena. The Falcons saw three different skaters score goals and sophomore Tommy Burke earned his first collegiate shutout victory.

Last Saturday night, BG lost to the Chargers 4-3 in overtime. Three different Falcon skaters scored goals and freshman goaltender Tomas Sholl made 22 saves.

BG scored three power-play goals over the weekend against the Chargers. In the last six games, the Falcons are 7 for 28 on the power play (25 percent), which is their best six-game stretch of the season. Overall, the Falcons are 17 of 91 (18 percent) on the power play, which is sixth in the WCHA.

Sophomore Dajon Mingo, who played as a defenseman over the weekend, recorded assists in back to back games against the Chargers. This was the first time this season that he has recorded points in back to back games. Mingo is currently on a three game point streak after recording a career high two goals against Lake Superior State on Nov. 30.

The Falcons are averaging approximately three goals a game, which is second overall in the WCHA.

Adam Berkle and Ryan Carpenter won’t play this weekend at Michigan Tech, Bergeron said Tuesday.

Berkle has missed the last three games with a hip pointer. Carpenter hasn’t played so far this season because of a broken finger and a broken foot.

BG will look to improve its 7-8-3 overall record, and 5-6-1 conference record this weekend.
