Arizona Hockey Blown Out Early by Williston State Tetons

Arizona Wildcats Hockey vs. Arizona State - Jason Bartel

Williston State scores on 3 of their first 4 shots against the WIldcats, never look back

Steven Sisler returned to the net on Wednesday for Arizona after not playing at all against ASU last weekend. Things did not go so well for him.

Sisler gave up three goals on the first four shots he faced in the game, forcing coach Sean Hogan to put Robert Schultz back between the pipes. Arizona went on to lose the game 4-1 as Schultz stopped 26 of 27 shots faced.

Arizona had a couple of power plays at the beginning of the second period to try and turn the momentum, but the Tetons answered defensively, not allowing any goals in the second.

The Wildcats finally found the net in the third after falling behind 4-0. Brennan Parker scored the Cats lone goal on the power play with three minutes left in the game. Arizona ended up going just 1 for 7 for the night on the PP.

The Wildcats continue their North Dakota road trip Friday and Saturday at No. 4 Minot State. Both games start at 6:30 p.m. Arizona time. Arizona clinches a spot in the ACHA National Tournament by remaining in the top 18 in the rankings after these two games. This loss to Williston State does not count in the team's overall record because they are a junior college, but it is very disconcerting to see this Wildcats team get dominated like this before heading to Minot. They need to get their rest tonight since they left Tucson early Thursday morning.

Three Stars:

3. Brandon Passley - WSC 1 G, 1 A

2. Nick Zern - WSC 1 G

1. Corey McMahon - WSC 30 saves on 31 shots faced

* 3 stars decided by Williston State radio broadcast team
