The Falcons and RedHawks had their hands full with their opponents this weekend.
This weekend in college hockey, both the Bowling Green State Falcons and the No. 4 Miami (OH) RedHawks got a taste of victory and defeat, both in dealings with the same team.
Bowling Green was able to pull out a 1-0 victory over the Michigan State Spartans on Friday behind a goal by sophomore defenseman Connor Kucera, the second score of his career. But the Spartans came back on Sunday and returned the favor by putting up six goals in a 6-1 rout of the Falcons. Camden Wojtala was the only one to score for the Falcons as the Spartans' Matt DeBlouw scored twice in victory.
The No. 19 Ferris State Bulldogs upset the RedHawks, 3-0, on Friday behind a dominant performance in goal by Ferris State and a lackluster overall effort by the No. 4 team in the country. The 19th-ranked Bulldogs couldn't pull it off twice, though, as the RedHawks returned the favor on Saturday in a much more inspired effort in beating the young Bulldogs, 4-2. The RedHawks were led by Austin Czarnik's two goals in the third period.
