Bowling Green clinched a berth in the Western Collegiate Hockey Association playoffs Friday night.
Now, they’ll try to earn home ice in the playoffs Saturday.
The Falcons played well overall en route in 5-3 win over Bemidji State at the Ice Arena.
Kevin Dufour, Ben Murphy and Sean Walker each had one goal and one assist for BG, which scored three straight goals in the second period to pull away from a 2-2 tie.   BOX SCORE WCHA STANDINGS WCHA SCORES PHOTO GALLERY
The Falcons finished with a 27-19 edge in shots.
Except for a handful of defensive lapses and a handful of turnovers, BG played well and was in control territorially most of the game.
Mark Cooper and Ryan Carpenter had the other BG goals, and Pierre-Luc Mercier and Mike Sullivan both had two assists.
“I was happy with the fact we controlled what we could, which is our game,” BG coach Chris Bergeron said. “I would think the guys feel good about that and that we’re in the playoffs.”

Eight Bowling Green seniors will make their final regular-season appearances in the Ice Arena this weekend.
The eight are Brett Mohler, Jake Sloat, Chad Sumsion, Ryan Viselli, Andrew Wallace, Bryce Williamson, Cam Wojtala and Scott Zacharias.
The Falcons host Bemidji State tonight and Saturday.
"They've meant more than I can put into words," Bergeron said. "They're leaving Bowling Green better than they found it. This program looks different. It feels different. The perceptions are different. The results are different in a positive way.
"If we have a bunch of classes in a row that can say what this class is saying, that we left Bowling Green better than we found it, we're going to have a program we can all be proud of. That's a pretty proud statement for these young guys. That's a great thing from a program building perspective."
The seniors have helped the Falcons steadily improve during their four seasons.
This weekend, BG tries to clinch a playoff berth in the Western Collegiate Hockey Association and perhaps earn home ice for the league quarterfinals.
BG hasn't hosted a playoff series since 2008, but it's won at least one playoff series in each of the last three seasons.
Wojtala was the first player to be commit to BG after Bergeron was named the team's head coach.

Bowling Green has plenty at stake this weekend.
The Falcons will attempt to clinch a berth in the Western Collegiate Hockey Association playoffs and perhaps home ice for the league quarterfinals.
BG enters the final weekend of the regular season needing two points to clinch a playoff berth in the 10-team league.
The Falcons, however, need help to earn home ice.
They can earn home ice with a home sweep of Bemidji State and two Michigan Tech losses at WCHA co-leader Minnesota State. Bemidji is tied for seventh.
"What we can control is our games," Bergeron said. "We want to play better. We want to play well, knowing if we play well, regardless of where it is, we give ourselves a pretty good chance against anybody in the league."
The third- through ninth-place teams in the WCHA are separated by just five points. The top eight teams make the playoffs, with the top four hosting quarterfinal series.
BG, which can still finish third in the league, and Alaska-Anchorage are tied for fifth with 26 points.
RALFS: Bergeron had no new information on sophomore defenseman Ralfs Freibergs, who reportedly failed a drug test during the Olympics, according to media reports in his native Latvia.

Ohio had an answer every time the Bowling Green Falcon men’s basketball team tried to get back into the game Tuesday at the Stroh Center.
And Bowling Green, which came into the contest No. 2 defensively in the Mid-American Conference allowing 63.5 points per game, had no answers for Ohio’s offense. PHOTO GALLERY
The end result was a 72-61 Ohio victory on BG’s Senior Night.
‘‘We couldn’t get enough stops to dig ourselves out of the hole,’’ BG head coach Louis Orr said about his team’s defense in the second half. ‘‘For us to be a good defensive team tonight, we had to make them miss, and to me we weren’t as engaged defensively.’’
