ACHA: #25 Arizona splits with 3rd ranked Arizona State

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) - #25 Arizona Wildcat Hockey split their weekend series with 3rd ranked rival Arizona State.

UA defeated the Sun Devils 2-1 Friday night at the TCC but ASU rebounded for a 5-0 win on Saturday night.

Ethan Stalhuth and Dylan Carter tallied goals in Arizona's victory while Garrett Patrick stopped 24 shots, including a crucial penalty shot late in the third period.

"This one is for the fans," coach Berman said after the victory. "They've stuck with us through this drought. This team is capable of great things and I think they are starting to realize it."

The Wildcats (9-12) now pause from play for the holidays.

UA will get a chance at redemption against the Sun Devils on Jan. 6 in Tempe for a two-game set before returning home to face Arkansas on Jan. 12.
