GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — Bowling Green’s hockey team had played consistently well during its last four games.
But the Falcons had little going for them Friday.
They didn’t play well offensively or defensively en route to a 4-0 loss to 15th-ranked Minnesota State in the semifinals of the Western Collegiate Hockey Association Final Five at Van Andel Arena.  BOX SCORE WCHA SCORES
Cole Huggins made 36 saves to lead a solid defensive effort by the Mavericks, who scored twice in each of the final two periods.
Each team had 36 shots on goal, but MSU held the upper hand most of the game to advance to Saturday’s championship game against No. 4 Ferris State (28-9-3), a 5-4 overtime winner over Alaska Anchorage in Friday’s other semifinal.
“Just not sharp, not what we had been the last four games,” BG coach Chris Bergeron said.

It was Bowling Green’s worst first half of the season.
That’s how head coach Jennifer Roos felt despite the Falcons holding a 33-32 lead over High Point at the break Thursday.  PHOTO GALLERY
Sparked by Miriam Justinger, things were different in the second half as Bowling Green posted a 72-62 victory in a first-round WNIT game at the Stroh Center.
The Falcons, now 28-4, play the winner of Friday’s St. Bonaventure-Charlotte game on a day, time, and place to be determined.
‘‘We were rattled, discombobulated, or other words or verbs that could describe the beginning of the game,’’ Roos said. ‘‘Turnovers without pressure are difficult to swallow at this time of the year.
‘‘We won’t start like that again.’’
High Point bolted out to a 14-4 lead in the first eight minutes of the game, as the Falcons missed 12 of their first 13 shots from the field.

What a difference four years can make.
Bowling Green’s gymnastics team has seen the worst of times over its past four seasons — now it is seeking to experience the best of times.
The Falcons were 0-6 in Mid-American Conference meets in 2011, and three years later they are one of the top contenders for the MAC championship at 4-2.
Eastern Michigan will host the championship meet Saturday at 2 p.m.
“We have decided to win. ... It’s a decision,” said senior Megan Harrington, who was a second-team All-MAC selection for the second straight year. “You decide you’re going to win. You’re not going to walk in there saying ‘maybe we’re going to win, maybe we’re going to hit our routines.’ You have to decide to do it. And we have decided to win this weekend.”
That kind of confidence is not just a senior without a MAC title just spouting off on a rant. That kind of confidence has been instilled into the team throughout the year.

Bowling Green's power play has been hot down the stretch.
And the penalty-killing has been good most of the season.
The Falcons need more of the same Friday against Minnesota State in the semifinals of the Western Collegiate Hockey Association Final Five at Van Andel Arena in Grand Rapids. Mich.
The Mavericks, ranked 15th nationally, are third in the nation in power-play conversions at 26.2 percent and sixth in penalty-killing at 85.9.
"That's going to be a big part of the game," BG coach Chris Bergeron said of the special teams.
The BG power play has scored a goal in seven straight games, going 9-of-22 (40.9 percent) in that span.
"We're going out there with a lot of confidence," BG forward Adam Berkle said. "We expect to score."
"I'm having some sleepless nights watching the way that power play is snapping the puck around the offensive zone," MSU coach Mike Hastings said. "They're beaming with confidence."
The BG penalty-killing is at 86.5 percent over the last 16 games (45-of-52).
"We're going to try to stay disciplined with our actions so we give their power play no opportunities or very limited opportunities," Bergeron said.
