The Army and Air Force NCAA D1 hockey teams both walked away with wins last weekend. The Black Knights suffered a heartbreaking loss in overtime to Canisius on Friday before coming back on Saturday to beat the Golden Griffins, 4-2 in regulation. Meanwhile, the Falcons had just one game - a home match-up against Niagara. Air Force squeaked by with a 2-1 victory.

Both teams continue Atlantic Hockey competition this weekend. Army hits the road for a lone game against Bentley this evening while the Falcons embark on an even longer journey east to take on Canisius in Buffalo, NY. The Black Knights remain in third place in AHA standings with Air Force trailing behind in seventh place.

While this week provided big news for Army seniors as they found out where they will be posting after their respective basic officer courses, Air Force freshman Brandon Koch earned some individual attention. Koch was named as AHA Rookie of the Month for January.



Navy hockey has had some mixed success as of late. The ACHA Men’s D1 squad is on a two-game win streak after defeating Towson and Villanova last weekend. They travel to take on West Chester University this evening before returning home for a Sunday match-up against Lehigh.

Navy’s ACHA Men’s D2 team suffered a 4-2 loss at home last Friday against George Washington. They play on the road today as well against Georgetown.

The Navy ACHA Women’s D2 team, coming off a two-week reprieve, is at home this Friday and Saturday, facing off against Buffalo in their final regular season games. The Women’s D2 squad currently sits in 5th place in the ACHA’s Women’s D2 Southeast Region.


Army’s ACHA D2 team is sporting a two-game losing streak after falling to UNH twice on the road last weekend. The Black Knights take on Montclair State in SECHL action this evening to round out their regular season schedule.

Air Force

The Falcons are on a seven-game win streak, which includes a recent win over the University of Northern Colorado, a top ACHA D2 team. The Air Force ACHA Men’s D3 team is looking to pad their 1st place Pacific Region ranking this weekend with two games against Colorado Mesa University.

Coast Guard

Not to be outdone, the Coast Guard ACHA Men’s D3 team is on a five-game win streak including a win over Navy’s D2 squad. The Bears are looking to closeout their regular season this Sunday against ACHA D2 Connecticut College. The Coast Guard D3 team is currently in 3rd place in the Atlantic Region.

Merchant Marine

The Merchant Marine ACHA Men’s D3 team is looking to get back in the win column this weekend following a 6-0 blanking at the hands of Suffolk County Community College. King’s Point takes on Western Connecticut State in a late night game today. The Merchant Marine D3 squad sits in 17th place in the Atlantic Region.
