HARTFORD, Conn. • Sean Ambrosie scored 35 seconds into overtime as Connecticut beat Air Force 3-2 in overtime Saturday in an Atlantic Hockey Association game. UConn (4-5-1) swept Air Force in the two-game series. Air Force falls to 3-6-3 and 2-3-1 in the league.

In overtime, UConn defenseman Tyler Helton intercepted a pass at the blue line and then took a shot from the right circle that was saved. Sean Ambrosie put back the rebound 35 seconds into overtime for a Husky win.

Jason Torf made 36 saves for the Falcons.

“The fact is that we are not a very good team right now and we are not very well coached,” coach Frank Serratore said. “We gave up 39 shots tonight and three even-strength goals. That just can’t happen. I told the team after the game that I let them down. I haven’t prepared the team very well to play 5-on-5. We have to get back to the fundamentals and start playing better in our own end.”

Air Force took its first lead of the series, with 15 seconds left in the second period. With the Huskies on the power play, Air Force skated the puck through the neutral zone. Jason Fabian took a shot that was saved but senior defenseman Eric Artman hustled down the right wing and scored his first of the season.

UConn tied the score early in the third period when Cody Sharib scored on a wrap-around at the 3:04 mark.
