PITTSBURGH — Brett Mohler, Bryce Williamson and Kevin Dufour scored goals Saturday as Bowling Green posted a 3-2 win over Robert Morris in the third-place game of the Three Rivers Classic.
The Falcons scored once in each period for a 3-0 lead before losing the shutout when RMU’s David Friedmann scored on a 5-on-3 power play with just 6:25 remaining.
BG controlled the game with a 35-22 edge in shots. Tomas Sholl had 20 saves for BG. BOX SCORE
The Falcons won for just the third time in their last nine games to improve to 9-9-4 overall. RMU fell to 2-12-2.
BG bounced back from a disappointing performance Friday in a 5-0 loss to seventh-ranked Boston College.
“We played well,” BG coach Chris Bergeron said. “Our offensive zone play was pretty good. We defended pretty well. There was more purpose to what we doing in the defensive zone in terms of our coverage which is something we’ve been struggling with.”

BG Football Noter: Aaron Donald disrupts Falcons' offensive line (12-27-13) PDF Print E-mail

DETROIT — Touted by Pittsburgh head coach Paul Chryst as “one of Pitt’s all-time best,” Aaron Donald proved to Bowling Green why he is widely considered the nation’s top defensive lineman.
The ACC defensive player of the year, a first-team All-American and winner of the Outland Trophy, the Bronko Nagurski Trophy, the Lombardi Award and the Chuck Bednarik Award, Donald manhandled the Falcons’ offensive line Thursday.
In a 30-27 Pitt win over BG in the Little Caesars Pizza Bowl, Donald led a defense that sacked BG quarterback Matt Johnson seven times and recorded another five tackles-for-loss. The Falcons allowed 34 sacks all season, entering the bowl game.
“We knew their (defensive) line was disruptive and we needed to keep them out of our backfield. And that didn’t happen,” said BG interim head coach Adam Scheier. “There was too much pressure on ‘Matty-J’ throughout the day.”

Bowling Green's hockey team faces one of its toughest challenges of the season this afternoon.
The Falcons face seventh-ranked Boston College in the semifinals of the Three Rivers Classic at Consol Energy Arena in Pittsburgh. Faceoff is 4:35.
"They're a great team," BG coach Chris Bergeron said. "It's as good and as a deep as we'll play."
The Eagles, 10-4-2 overall, lead the nation in scoring at 4.18 goals per game.
On the other hand, BG (8-8-2) has allowed three or more goals in eight of its last 10 games.
"You turn pucks over against them and they'll make you pay ... and their d-corps (defense) is dynamic," Bergeron said. "You have to put them in a situation where they're uncomfortable and they're playing that hard game where every inch of ice is hard to get to.
"That's a good situation for us because when you haven't played for a while, those are things you can control. You can play that hard game. You can play that simple game."

DETROIT — The end result wasn’t what Bowling Green had hoped for at the Little Caesars Pizza Bowl.
The Falcons, who were 2-10 in 2010, won the Mid-American Conference championship beating nationally ranked and previously unbeaten Northern Illinois, 47-27 on Dec. 6.
The final team goals — winning a bowl game, and beating a BCS team — for this current group of seniors who played through the 2-10 season, were there for the taking Thursday against Pittsburgh.
Pitt kicked the eventual game-winning field goal with 1:17 left in the fourth quarter in a 30-27 victory. The Falcons finished 10-4.
‘‘In terms of our team, I couldn’t be more proud of the way this group handled themselves the last three weeks, what we accomplished in five months since we started this season, and what they accomplished in our five years here as a staff,’’ said Adam Scheier, BG’s interim head coach for the bowl game. Scheier was named the interim coach after Dave Clawson, BG’s head coach since 2009, left after the MAC title game to become head coach at Wake Forest.
