WEST POINT, N.Y. - Three Falcons scored and freshman Chris Truehl made 20 saves as Air Force beat Army, 3-1, in an Atlantic Hockey Association game, Friday at Tate Rink.

"This was a hard-fought win, there was nothing easy about it," Falcons coach Frank Serratore said. "Our top line was the class of the game, best line on the ice. They were good tonight. Truehl did what he had to do. He was solid and got better as the game went on."

Junior center Chad Demers put the Falcons (11-6-4, 6-3-3) on the board at the 12:00 mark of the first period from Cole Gunner and Jacob Musselman. Gunner made a centering pass from the right side and Demers tipped it in for his team-leading 10th goal of the season.

The Falcons took a 2-0 lead at 8:11 of the second period as Jason Fabian scored his fifth of the season.

Defensemen Johnny Hrabovsky and Musselman assisted on the goal. Hrabovsky's shot was knocked down in front and the puck bounced around in the slot. Fabian cleaned it up for a two-goal lead.

Army (3-15, 3-11) scored late.
