NIAGARA FALLS, N.Y. - Niagara scored four goals in the third period for a come-from-behind 4-1 win Friday over Air Force in an Atlantic Hockey Association game.

"Niagara is a difficult team to play against, especially in this building," Air Force coach Frank Serratore said. "They came at us hard all night and the play through people. We didn't capitalize on our opportunities tonight and they did. We had some really good chances on the power play, but didn't get a power-play goal."

After a scoreless first period, the Falcons (19-12-4, 14-9-3) scored first as freshman A.J. Reid tipped in a point shot by Jason Fabian with 5:00 left in the second period. Air Force outshot Niagara, 16-4, in the second period.

Niagara (11-17-5, 11-10-5) tied the score with a power-play goal by Hugo Turcotte at 3:44 of the third period on a re-direct in front. The Purple Eagles then scored three times to close the period.

"We don't have time to feel sorry for ourselves," Serratore said. "We need to come back tomorrow night with more spirit and put our best foot forward."
