Rough 3rd Period for Alaska, Falls to BGSU 3-2 at Home

First period got a good start for the Nanooks, but a few turnovers really change the tide of the game. The Falcons capitalized on the first one in the Nanooks own zone down low caught the defense out of position, and Mark Cooper was able to get it past the short side of Cahill. 

But the Nanooks can do that too, as Brandon Morley swiped a failed clearing attempt out of the air and made a defenseman miss and forced a 2 on 1, and made a great back door pass to Peter Krieger to knot it up at 1. 

But another costly turnover on the break out by the 'Nooks sent them to the locker room down 2-1. 

Marcus Basara gets the tying goal in the second period on really a nice individual effort wheeling up to the blue line then sneaking down the slot and waited out the goaltender and tucked it in around his pad. Pretty goal. 

But it wouldn't be enough as the Nanooks would come out pretty flat in the 3rd and couldn't really step into that groove with each other to get things going. And it cost them. Bowling Green got the game winner with 7 minutes left and had plenty of other chances to when that lead. Cahill did his part and stopped what he could but defensively the Nanooks needed some help tonight. 

Tough break too with the parents weekend festivities going on. A lot of parents here and I know the guys wanted to get this win. But hey, get some rest brush it off and come back tomorrow ready to work. New day and a new game. Time to come win.
