NEVILLE TWP., Pa. — The Air Force Academy squared up against Robert Morris University in the final regular season series at the RMU Island Sports Center.
The Air Force Falcons shutout the Colonials 1-0 in the typical physically demanding Friday night match up. Erik Baskin took an early lead for the Falcons just 4 minutes into the game. Despite Robert Morris outshooting the Falcons 29-23, the Colonials were unable to tie the game.
Zack Mirageas took a five-minute major in the first period for a Contact to the Head penalty against Luke Lynch and a game misconduct. Timmy Moore took a five-minute penalty for Spearing and a game misconduct in the second.
Tomorrow, the Colonials will celebrate their nine-person senior class: Alex Bontje, Brett Beauvais, Elias Ghantous, Brady Ferguson, Spencer Dorowicz, Timmy Moore, Robert Powers, Andrew Pikul, and Alex Dagnal. There will be a short ceremony before the 7:05 p.m. puck drop.
