WEST POINT, N.Y. - Tyler Ledford scored the game-winner and Billy Christopoulos stopped all 15 shots he faced in a 1-0 overtime win over Army in game three of the Atlantic Hockey Conference quarterfinal series Sunday. Air Force advances to the AHC Final Four in Rochester, N.Y., for the third straight year.
"I knew this would be a tight series and one for the ages," coach Frank Serratore said. "We had so many good chances and, when you don't score, you start to wonder if it is your night."
The Falcons have the opportunity to defend their AHC Championship against second-seeded Canisius on Friday.
"It was a surreal moment (scoring that goal)," Ledford said.
