This one hurt.
UAH’s Massachusetts trip got to a rocky start, falling 9-1 to Bentley in Watertown, Mass. It was Bentley’s first ever win over the Chargers, who had won the previous seven meetings.
Not much to say about this one. Bentley only had a 33-27 shots on goal advantage, but the Falcons found all sorts of ways to beat John Griggs and CJ Groh.
Bentley got on the board first with a goal by Ben O’Brien at the 12:03 mark. Bentley made it 2-0 after Andrew Gladiuk punched in a rebound with 6.1 seconds left.
The first half of the second period was pretty even, but Ben Campanelli made it 3-0 Falcons at the 10:45 mark.
UAH’s lone goal came on the power play with 7:01 left in the second. Jeff Vanderlugt redirected a Graeme Strukoff shot from the point past Komm for his first goal of the season.
Bentley pulled away late in the second with goals by Joe Koudys and Ben Gensler 1:14 apart for a 5-1 lead.
Groh took over at goaltender to start the third. Bentley scored early, and then often, with four in the third for the final tally.
