Air Force vs. Alaska-Fairbanks: Falcons tie Nanooks, 3-3

Douglas Jones-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

The Air Force Falcons and Alaska-Fairbanks Nanooks played to a 3-3 tie in the Kendall Hockey Classic on Friday night in Anchorage, Alaska.

The Air Force Falcons opened their season with a 3-3 overtime tie against the Alaska-Fairbanks Nanooks in the first round of the Kendall Hockey Classic in Anchorage, Alaska, on Friday night. The Falcons trailed entering the third period, but scored early to hold out for the draw.

Because the game is part of a tournament, the two teams battled in a shootout after the overtime period even though the game is technically recorded as a tie. The Falcons were only able to score once against the Nanooks' Sean Cahill, losing 2-1 in the shootout.

Air Force led 2-1 at one point in the first period, but the Nanooks battled back to take the lead entering the third period. The Falcons quickly tied things up, though, with Chad Demers scoring the game-tying goal just over a minute into the period.

The Falcons are now scheduled to take on the host school of this weekend's tournament, the Alaska-Anchorage Seawolves, on Saturday night.
