Air Force-Army series 'so much bigger than the games'

Jan. 9, 2014

On Jan. 15, 2011, Army senior Cody Omilusik was cut by a slash. Instead of leaving the game against Air Force, the forward was stitched up by his dad. He returned and scored three goals in the match, including the game-winning, empty-net tally.

That game took place before freshman C.J. Reuschlein joined Army, but he's heard the tale.

"That kind of shows the passion the guys play through in this rivalry," Reuschlein said.

Junior Mac Lalor, ready for his fifth game against the Falcons, said he remembers his freshman year contest the most.

The Black Knights were trailing 3-2 in the third period on Jan. 20, 2012, when senior Mark Dube scored a shorthanded tally to knot the game at 3-3. The match ended in a tie, the fifth in the all-time series.

"There seemed to be a lot more hits thrown, the intensity seemed to be thrown up a notch, which was actually, I loved it," Lalor said. "It's a great game to play."
