Bowling Green’s hockey team found a way to lose again Saturday night.
The Falcons held three one-goal leads, but Alabama-Huntville rallied for a 4-3 overtime win in the Ice Arena.
The Chargers scored the game’s final two goals to earn their first victory of the season.
Frank Misuraca scored the winning goal on a high shot from the right point with 3.4 seconds remaining in overtime. The goal was the first of the season for the sophomore defenseman.  BOX SCORE
The Chargers forced the five-minute extra period on Jack Prince’s rebound goal from the right side of the crease with 7:30 remaining in regulation.
UAH is 1-15 overall and 1-9 in the Western Collegiate Hockey Association.
BG fell to 7-8-3, 5-6-1.
The Falcons are 2-5-1 in their last eight games, and have held a lead late in the second period or the third period of all five losses and the one tie.
“We weren’t good enough,” BG coach Chris Bergeron said.
The Falcons held a 44-26 edge in shots on goal and controlled the play, but they weren’t sharp and still had the same issues that have cost them the last four weekends.

DETROIT — The casual observer who heard a Heisman Trophy candidate was playing Friday night at Ford Field, might have been confused during the Mid-American Conference championship game.
With all the hype heaped on Northern Illinois’ Jordan Lynch, it was Bowling Green’s Matt Johnson’s play which was worthy of a highlight film.  PHOTO GALLERY
A redshirt sophomore, Johnson led the Falcons to a 47-27 upset win over nationally-ranked and previously undefeated Northern Illinois.
Johnson was 21-of-27 passing for 393 yards with touchdown passes to five different teammates. The yardage and TD passes were both career highs for Johnson. He set a MAC championship game record with the five TD passes.
He also rushed 10 times for 33 yards and did not turn the ball over. BG’s offensive line gave him time to throw, allowing only two sacks.

DETROIT — Friday’s 47-27 victory over Northern Illinois in the Mid-American Conference championship game culminated a long journey for Bowling Green head coach Dave Clawson, who is in his fifth year with the program, and his first two recruiting classes, which provided the heart and soul of the championship team.
In 2010, the Falcons were 2-10.  PHOTO GALLERY
Now, Bowling Green is 10-3 with a MAC championship trophy for the trophy case, rings for the players and staff, and a bowl game invitation coming in the near future.
“There is nothing better than you can ask for. We talked about it all week, from where my class has come from starting with a 2-10 record and gradually got better and it all came together,’’ fifth-year senior tight end Alex Bayer said. ‘‘Guys have been stepping up all year, it is not over yet, but there is no better feeling.”
