Bowling Green’s hockey team played well during the first 30 minutes Saturday to build a two-goal lead.
The Falcons then — in the story of their season — threw it all away under an avalanche of mistakes.
They held a 3-1 lead midway through the second period before Michigan Tech stormed back to earn a 5-4 overtime victory in the Ice Arena.  BOX SCORE
Blake Pietila scored a power-play goal just 1:22 into overtime to give Tech the win and a sweep of the Western Collegiate Hockey Association series.  WCHA STANDINGS WCHA SCORES
He scored from the right side of the crease after BG was penalized just eight seconds into the extra period.
The Huskies reached overtime on Jacob Johnstone’s second goal of the game with just 3:42 to go in regulation. He won a faceoff in BG’s defensive zone and cut across the front of the net, scoring from the left-side of the crease.
The Falcons were playing well before they were beaten by an assortment of turnovers, missed shot blocks, coverage breakdowns, poor penalties and the lost faceoff.

Bowling Green’s hockey team wasn’t sharp Friday night.
The Falcons didn’t play well offensively or defensively, and their goaltending wasn’t good in a 5-2 loss to Michigan Tech at the Ice Arena. BOX SCORE PHOTO GALLERY
They spotted Tech a 2-0 lead in the first period and saw the Huskies run the lead to 4-0 in the second period.
BG was never closer than three goals the rest of the way. Brent Tate and Ralfs Freibergs had the Falcon goals. 
The Huskies held a 28-21 edge in shots. David Johnstone scored twice, while Pheonix Copley had 19 saves.
Both teams were 1-of-3 on the power play.
“This was as bad as we’ve played,” BG coach Chris Bergeron said. “ ... I haven’t seen our team play this poor in a long time. ... Our top guys weren’t right and it went all the way down (the lineup).”

Sloat enjoying time with BG hockey (01-31-14) PDF Print E-mail

Jake Sloat's last two seasons at Bowling Green have been frustrating.
But the senior has remained a positive influence on the Falcon hockey team.
The 5-foot-11, 185-pounder missed BG's final 40 games last season after breaking his ankle during the team's Canadian exhibition Oct. 7.
This season, Sloat has played in just two games as the Falcons' depth on defense has increased.
Sloat, recruited as a walkon by former head coach Dennis Williams, played regularly his first two seasons. He had two goals and 14 assists in 75 games.
"Every second of my experience here has been great, very positive, and I wouldn't trade it for the world," Sloat said.
Although Sloat isn't guaranteed to play tonight and Saturday against Michigan Tech in the Ice Arena, he still works hard every day in practice.
The Colorado native had an assist and blocked three shots in BG's 6-2 win over Lake Superior last Saturday.

Random thoughts while wishing Bowling Green State University would change its school colors from brown and orange to black and orange:

WRIST SLAP: Mid-American Conference and Time Warner Cable Sports Network officials deserve a slap on the wrist for causing Bowling Green's hockey and men's basketball teams to play at the same time last Saturday.
The starting time for the men's basketball game against Miami was changed from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. to allow the game to be televised by TWCSN.
But the Falcon hockey team already had a home game against Lake Superior at 7:07 that night.
The MAC and TWCSN should be sympathetic to the three conference members - BG, Miami and Western Michigan - which have hockey teams.
It isn't fair to those schools to force their men's basketball and hockey teams to play dueling home games.

ATHENS — Bowling Green took Ohio’s best shot, and came out swinging in the second half on the way to a 78-62 victory in a Mid-American Conference women’s game Thursday.
Ohio trailed by 10 at one point in the first half, but fought back to take a 35-31 lead into the break.
‘‘They played extremely well in the first half,’’ BG head coach Jennifer Roos said about the Bobcats. ‘‘We gave up the most points, and the highest field-goal percentage to date.
‘‘Even though we shot over 50 percent, we found ourselves down four at the half,’’ she added.
Ohio penetrated to the basket, and made  four 3-pointers to key its first-half success.
‘‘There were a lot of things we talked about at halftime,’’ Roos said, including rebounding and free throws.
