Air Force vs. Canisius final score: Falcons earn 1-1 tie

Elsa

The Air Force Falcons hockey team was out-gunned by the Canisius Golden Griffins, but goaltender Jason Torf helped earn them a 1-1 tie in Buffalo, NY on Thursday.

The Air Force Falcons earned a 1-1 draw with the Canisius Golden Griffins on Thursday and still have not yet managed to get a win in 2012 college hockey action. Following two draws in Alaska and two losses against their Colorado rivals, they headed to Buffalo, NY for their first conference game. Unfortunately, they couldn't find a result in the Northeast either.

Goaltender Jason Torf was the star of the show for the Falcons, stopping a barrage of shots let loose by the Golden Griffins. The 31 shots they let loose included 12 in the first period, all of which were kept out by Torf. Griffins 'tender Tony Capobianco was not kept busy, as the Falcons were out-shot in every period and only managed 18 shots on goal total through all three periods and overtime.

Kyle De Laurell scored the only Air Force goal in the game 11 minutes into the first period, their best period of the night. After the goal, both the shooting and the scoring dried up significantly, and Torf allowed his only goal in the second period off a rebound shot from Taylor Law. Neither team could find the twine after that.

Air Force will head out to Pittsburgh for their next conference game, facing off against Robert Morris on Saturday.
