Division III set to host McKendree

This past weekend, the Division III Ice Hogs (8-2-0) hosted Pacific Region foe Kansas at home. On Friday the 19th, the Hogs got on the board first as Alex Parisi scored for the Hogs. Kansas answered with two goals of their own in the first to take a 2-1 lead into the second period. Kansas would go on to score two more goals in the second and one in the third to beat the Razorbacks by a 5-2 final.

The two teams squared off again the next day. The first period was a quiet one as neither team scored. That changed in the second period as both teams combined for six total goals, which produced a 4-2 Kansas lead entering the third period.  Arkansas markers came from Aidan Everett and Corey Rees. In the final frame, Kansas pulled away by scoring two more goals and securing the weekend sweep by defeating the Hogs 6-2.

The Division III team returns home again this weekend against McKendree. The Hogs come into the weekend with a record of 8-2-0, while McKendree enters with a record of 4-2-0. McKendree is riding a four-game winning streak.  The teams have met six total times and Arkansas has won all six contests. Arkansas will look to get back in the win column following the two losses to Kansas.
