Illinois hockey lost both games in a two-game series against Iowa State this weekend in a clash of two top-25 teams in the American Collegiate Hockey Association (ACHA). The weekend series was fueled by physical play but the Illini ultimately weren’t able to get the result they wanted; they lost the weekend series by a combined two goals.

The game on Friday night started with the Illini taking a penalty for too many men on the ice.

However, the team bounced back with a goal by sophomore forward Kacper Ryba to put the Illini up early in the first period. Iowa State wasted no time answering with a goal of its own a minute later, tying it at one. The Illini were able to leave the first period with a 2-1 lead thanks to an unassisted goal from senior forward Jon Moskaluk.
