  • Air Force men's basketball assistant Silvey Dominguez departs for Washington State

    Air Force basketball assistant coach Silvey Dominguez is leaving the academy for the same role at Washington State. Dominguez, who has 24 years of Division I experience, had been with Air Force for nearly three years and was retained on staff when coach Dave Pilipovich replaced Jeff Reynolds during the 2012-13 season. "He's a lifer,"...

  • Air Force tops Michigan in men's lacrosse thanks to strong play by Erik Smith

    Senior captain Erik Smith may not lead Air Force in goals or assists, but the Falcons probably would not be riding a four-game win streak without him. Smith scored an insurance goal and won enough face-offs to help Air Force hold off Michigan 15-12 on Saturday in men's lacrosse. His multi-faceted performance showed why he is the first...

  • Ramsey: Kale Pearson and his repaired knee should start at QB for Air Force

    Kale Pearson wants to make an announcement to all those wondering about Air Force's starting quarterback position. "This is my senior year, and this is going to be my job," Pearson said Wednesday a few minutes after watching the Falcons engage in a spirited, and sloppy, scrimmage at District 20 Stadium. Pearson believes a struggling Air...

  • Next season's solution? Freshman running back emerges in Air Force spring game

    Jacobi Owens came to Air Force knowing life in the military can change in an instant. He just didn't think it would happen in this particular manner. Owens was the breakout star for the Falcons in their spring game on Wednesday evening at District 20 Stadium. The tailback from Las Vegas ran for 98 yards on eight carries and scored both of...

  • Air Force has second 20-win hockey team, but quarterfinal exit is painful

    The potential shown by Air Force hockey makes this year's league quarterfinals exit all the more disappointing. "I feel sorry for the seniors," Falcons coach Frank Serratore said. "To be able to get to Rochester (N.Y., league semifinals) and two games away, at a neutral site, from the NCAAs was the goal but it didn't work out that way....

  • Slow start dooms Air Force, which faces an elimination game on Sunday

    Niagara attacked Air Force like you'd expect from a team that didn't want its season to end. As a result, the squads will face off again on Sunday with the assurance that one team will, in fact, be finished. The Purple Eagles stormed to a two-goal lead on the Falcons' home ice, then survived an Air Force run before finally securing a 4-3...

  • Defense turns Hartner's goal into game-winner for Air Force

    Air Force saw a one-goal lead disappear in 30 seconds on Friday at Cadet Ice Arena. Once the Falcons regained the lead, they made sure not to lose it. Fourth line left wing Max Hartner broke a tie with 10:17 remaining in the second period and the No. 3-seeded Falcons suffocated No. 6 Niagara for the entire third period to win Game 1 of the...

  • Air Force looking for production from more than first line in playoffs

    Air Force sophomore Ben Carey picked a good time to snap a 12-game scoring drought recently. He and other Falcons will be counted on heavily to provide needed secondary scoring when AFA hosts No. 6 seed Niagara in a best-of-three Atlantic Hockey Association quarterfinals starting Friday at Cadet Ice Arena. "We needed him to produce," coach...

  • Air Force men's basketball team needs to focus on the finishes

    For about 35 minutes per game, Air Force exceeded all expectations this season. It's those final five minutes that the Falcons hope to address in the future. "We've just got to finish," coach Dave Pilipovich said after the worst collapse of them all, a 61-59 loss to Fresno State in the Mountain West Tournament that saw his team lose a...
