Sacred Heart goalie Brett Magnus made 35 saves to lead the Pioneers to a 2-1 win over Air Force in an Atlantic Hockey Conference game Friday at the Cadet Ice Arena.

The Pioneers (7-14-4, 4-10-4 AHC) struck in the first period on the rush. Jackson Barliant skated the puck into the Falcon zone and snapped a wrister in at 3:04. Later in the period, the Falcons tied the game on the forecheck. Marshall Bowery released a puck into the corner and fellow freshman Walker Sommer ran it down. Sommer gave it back to Bowery who scored at 12:35. It was Bowery's fourth of the season and third in the past two games.

In the second period, the Pioneers capitalized on an Air Force turnover. Vito Bavaro collected the loose puck and sent it in front to a wide-open Mel Melconian. Billy Christopoulos poked the puck away from Melconian. The puck caromed off of Melconian's foot and under the pads of Christopoulos for a 2-1 lead at 3:22.

The Falcons (11-11-3, 6-9-2 AHC) outshot Sacred Heart, 36-16.

"I liked our game tonight," coach Frank Serratore said. "The effort was there. In a lot of ways, I am proud of our guys. I feel bad for them ... but we have to find a way to score."
