Fal­cons’ rally comes up short

The Denver Post - - SPORTS - By Den­ver Post staff and wire re­ports

Air Force’s first-ever bid to reach the Fi­nal Four fell short in a 3-2 loss Satur­day to Har­vard in the East Re­gional cham­pi­onship in Prov­i­dence, R.I.

The Fal­cons bat­tled back from a 3-0 deficit with two goals in a 15-sec­ond span dur­ing the sec­ond pe­riod, but Air Force was un­able to get the ty­ing goal.

Har­vard (28-5-2), a No. 1 seed and ranked sec­ond over­all be­hind Den­ver, looked like it would cruise to an easy win.

Vik­tor Dom­brovskiy’s goal at 9:54 of the first pe­riod made it 1-0.

Rayn Donato made it 2-0 at 7:47 of the sec­ond pe­riod and Tyler Moy scored a power-play goal at 9:50 for a three-goal lead.

But the Fal­cons (27-10-5) re­sponded. Brady Tom­lak scored just 1:33 later and Jor­dan Him­ley added a power-play goal at 11:38 to make it 3-2.

Har­vard will play Min­nesota Du­luth in one of the na­tional semi­fi­nal games, to be held April 6.
