WORCESTER, MASS. • Air Force hoped for better, but the Falcons played Saturday like they were content to leave town with a tie and a 3-for-4 point weekend.

And that’s exactly what happened Saturday night.

The Falcons (5-5-2, 5-1-2 Atlantic Hockey Association) rallied in the third period to tie the game and take the lead. But Holy Cross got an unassisted goal from Brodie Sheahan with 3:55 left in the game, the final tally in a 2-2 deadlock.

"This was a very entertaining game," Falcons coach Frank Serratore said. "A lot of times, low-scoring games are snoozers, but these two games (Air Force won 1-0 Friday night) were not."

Air Force got a power-play goal from Matt Fairchild and short-handed tally from Paul Weisgarber. Andrew Volkening made 28 saves and the Falcons stayed atop the AHA standings, albeit tied with RIT.
