  • Poetry for Fall

  • A Theatrical Rivalry with Love and Despair
    By Jay Grummel If We Were Villains has a way of making the horrifics acts of rivals and the blurry line of morals poetic.

Hockey team looks to build off of their 14 season goals

Coming off a weekend series sweep on the road, the BG hockey team will go on the road again to face the Clarkson University Golden Knights this weekend in Potsdam, New York.

BG shut out Alabama-Huntsville 5-0 on Friday night and finished the weekend series sweep with a 4-1 victory on Saturday. Both victories allowed the Falcons to begin the regular season with four points in conference play.

“There’s always room for improvement but right now they’re getting results,” said head coach Chris Bergeron.

Falcon forward Kevin Dufour scored three more goals over the weekend and freshman Brandon Hawkins contributed two goals and two assists against Alabama-Huntsville. Dufour now leads the NCAA with six goals in four games.

“I try to keep my game simple and I’ve been finding ways to help contribute offensively,” Dufour said.

The Falcons also received a shorthanded goal from Mitch McLain in Friday’s game, which was his first collegiate goal. BG has outscored their opponents 7-1 on the power play, and are 7-for-23 overall on the power play on the year, which is second in the Western Collegiate Hockey Association.

The Falcons went 9-for-9 on the penalty kill over the weekend against the Chargers and are now 14-for-15 on the penalty kill for the season, which is third in the WCHA.

As a team, BG has scored 14 goals in the first four games of the season, which is tied for the most in the WCHA. The Falcons also have a total of 154 shots on goal this season, and trail only Lake Superior State for the most shots on net in the WCHA so far.

“We’ve been practicing well, and with Kevin Dufour being so hot, he’s got the hot stick so we just find him and he’s been putting the puck in the net,” Mark Cooper said.

Freshman goaltender Chris Nell made his first collegiate start on Friday for the Falcons and made 20 saves to help shutout the Chargers. Tomas Sholl, another Falcon goaltender has two wins in two starts this year. He has a .932 save percentage and 41 saves so far this season.

The Clarkson Golden Knights hold a 14-12-1 all-time series lead in their 27 meetings against the Falcons. However, BG is 4-1-0 against Clarkson and has outscored the Golden Knights by a 14-9 margin over their last five matchups.

The Golden Knights enter the weekend with a 2-2 overall record this season after getting swept by the University of Vermont in a home-and-home series.

In the Falcons road series against Clarkson this weekend, Friday’s game will start at 7:07 p.m. and Saturday’s game will begin at 7:30 p.m.
