NCAA Hockey Scores: Air Force Falcons Tie Alabama-Huntsville Chargers, 1-1

The Air Force Falcons nearly allowed the Alabama-Huntsville Chargers to pick up their first win of the season. However, a third-period of goal tied the game at 1-1. The game ended in a 1-1 tie after overtime.

In the second period, Air Force's Chad Demers was called for a boarding penalty at 7:11. The Chargers took advantage of the power play with a Kyle Lysaght power play goal at 8:07. It was Lysaght's first goal of the season with an assist going to Tom Durnie.

The Chargers held that lead late into the third period, but Lysaght, nearly the hero of the game, went to the box for a check from behind. Cole Gunner netted his first goal of the season on the ensuing power play to tie the game. Chad Demers and Tim Kirby picked up assists on the goal at 16:29.

The game went into overtime, but neither team was able to score. Saunders slid across the ice to stop a puck from going into the net in the extra frame. Air Force shot an amazing 56 shots on net, but could only slip one past Clarke Saunders. Air Force's Stephen Caple stopped 28 of 29 shots.

They take to the ice again on Saturday night at 6:05 p.m .MT.
