HOUGHTON, Mich. — Tommy Burke made 39 saves and Kevin Dufour scored twice to help Bowling Green to a 3-2 win over Michigan Tech in a Western Collegiate Hockey Association game Friday.
Burke was outstanding on a night the Falcons were out-shot by a 41-18 margin.
Dufour scored twice to give the Falcons a 3-1 lead.  BOX SCORE
The freshman snapped a 1-1 tie with 4:20 remaining in the second period and increased the lead to 3-1 just 1:42 into the third period.
Tech cut BG’s lead to one goal when Alex Petan scored with 2:43 remaining, but the Falcons held on to improve to 8-8-3 overall and 6-6-1 in the WCHA. Tech is 6-9-4, 4-4-3.
The win was just BG’s third in the last nine games. The Falcons are 3-5-1 in that span, even though they held a lead late in the second period or the third period in those five losses and the one tie.

Falcons' Burke seeks consistency (12-13-13) PDF Print E-mail

Tommy Burke
Tommy Burke was played well overall for Bowling Green's hockey team.
The next step for him is to be sharp on a consistent basis.
Burke is working hard to eliminate the one so-called soft goal he allows each game - the routine shot a goalie should stop that end up in the net - from his game that have plagued him during the last month.
He's off to a good start. The sophomore is coming off a 18-save shutout  in a 3-0 win over Alabama-Huntsville last Friday.
Burke has alternated starts with freshman Tomas Sholl, and will be in goal tonight when  BG visits Michigan Tech in the opener of a Western Collegiate Hockey Association series.
"I'm more comfortable this season," said Burke, who has a 2.26 goals-against average and a  .907 save percentage in eight games this season.

Flashes from Gordon: Football coaches face no-win situation (12-12-13) PDF Print E-mail

Random thoughts while hoping Bowling Green State University hires Jim Tressel as its head football coach:

'TIS THE SEASON: Dave Clawson was in a no-win situation once he accepted the head coaching position at Wake Forest.
BG's former head coach wasn't going to be able to coach the Falcons in the Little Caesars Bowl.
It's a shame Clawson, his assistant coaches and their players won't have one last game to celebrate their success and hard work, and perhaps even beat Pittsburgh in the bowl game.
Unfortunately, that's the nature of college football and one of its necessary evils.
There aren't enough hours in a day for Clawson or any other head coach to prepare his old team for a game and transition to his new school at the same time, no matter how much energy they might have.
Clawson needs time to hire assistant coaches, start recruiting and prepare for spring practice at Wake. And that doesn't include finding a place to live and all of the details a move entails aside from the actual coaching.

Pittsburgh provides an interesting challenge for the Bowling Green Falcon football team.
The teams will face each other Dec. 26 in the Little Caesars Pizza Bowl. Kickoff is at 6 p.m. and the game will be televised on ESPN. Pitt is 6-6 and BG is 10-3.
''We're excited for the chance to play in another game against such a quality opponent," Pitt coach Paul Chryst said in a statement released by Pitt officials. "Bowling Green was impressive not only in its MAC championship win but all season long, and we have a competitive game of football ahead."
The Falcons will need to find a way to contain Pitt's Aaron Donald, who already has won the Bronko Nagurski Award and the Rotary Lombardi Award.
The Nagurski Award is given annually to the nation's top college defensive player. The Lombardi Award is presented annually to the nation's top college lineman.
