FAIRBANKS, Alaska (KTVF) - UAF’s hockey team took care of business against Stonehill College this past weekend, completing the sweep to move to six wins on the season.

In the third, Stonehill tied it up at one, and Anton Rubtsov would take back the lead for the Nanooks a minute and half later.

With just over five minutes left in the game, Jonny Sorenson sealed it on the powerplay for the three to one win.

Game two saw the Nooks offensive power wake up to break out the brooms.

The team scored early and often throughout the first and second period. Rubtsov, Sorenson, Xavier Jean-Louis, and Broten Sabo scored in the first period.
