BRIDGEPORT, CONN — Air Force scored four goals in the second period and held off Sacred Heart for a 4-3 win in an Atlantic Hockey Association game, Saturday, Nov. 2, at Webster Bank Arena in Bridgeport, Conn.

“The boys bounced back well after last night’s game,” head coach Frank Serratore said. “Sacred Heart is a good team. We were better tonight and were a harder team to play against. Alex Schilling played well in his first start and it was nice to see him get his first win. Sacred Heart has a history of pulling the goalie and breaking our hearts, but we persevered today. A team with less substance could have lost that game, but we hung in there, showed some poise and got a much-needed win.”

Air Force (1-7-0, 1-3-0 AHA) returns home for a two-game league series against Bentley, Nov. 8-9, at 7:05 pm each night at Cadet Ice Arena.
