  • They Both Die at the End – General Review
    Summer break is the perfect opportunity to get back into reading. Adam Silvera’s (2017) novel, They Both Die at the End, can serve as a stepping stone into the realm of reading. The pace is fast, action-packed, and develops loveable characters. Also, Silvera switches point of view each chapter where narration mainly focuses on the protagonists, […]

The Bowling Green hockey team scored a combined five goals over the weekend in a 2-game sweep of Ferris State at the BGSU Ice Arena.

The 8th ranked BG hockey team defeated Ferris State 3-2 on Saturday night to sweep the weekend series. With the win, the Falcons improved their overall record to 17-6-5 and 13-4-3 in conference play.

“I don’t want to say that Bowling Green hockey is back, but you tell me a better atmosphere than this place,” BG head coach Chris Bergeron said.

In Saturday’s game, Ferris State scored first to take a 1-0 lead with 6:42 left in the first period. Minutes later, BG captain Dan DeSalvo scored to tie the game at one.

Ben Murphy recorded an assist on the goal. Both teams finished the first period tied at one and with five shots on goal.

Beginning the second period playing 4-on-4 hockey, neither team could score. But, with both teams playing at full strength, Pierre-Luc Mercier received a five minute penalty for charging.

The Falcons were able to successfully kill off the penalty. BG went back on the penalty kill when Sean Walker was called for a double minor hooking and unsportsmanlike conduct penalty with 9:10 left in the second period.

With 6:24 left in the period, Ferris State was called for a hooking penalty. However, the Bulldogs scored a goal seconds later to take a 2-1 lead.

Going into the second intermission, the Falcons trailed the Bulldogs 2-1. Ferris State had 16 shots on goal and the Falcons had 10.

“There seemed to be a calm focus,” Bergeron said. “There was no panic. Everybody stuck to the game plan and believed in it and believed in each other.”

At the 5:49 mark, Ben Murphy scored off a rebound to tie the game at two. Connor Kucera and Brandon Hawkins recorded assists on the goal.

“There was a lot of belief. We knew what we were going to do and it showed,” Murphy said.

Moments later, Pierre-Luc Mercier scored to give the Falcons a 3-2 lead. Matt Pohlkamp recorded an assist on the play.

With 8:55 left in regulation BG went on the power play following a Ferris State interference penalty. BG was unable to score on the man advantage.

With one minute left in the game, Ferris State pulled their goalie to give them a one man advantage. However, the Bulldogs could not score and BG won 3-2.
