The Kent State Hockey Club fought through heavy penalties and improved their record to 15-12 after two wins this past weekend against Oswego State University (10-7-2) and Robert Morris University (15-7-4).

Coach Jim Underwood hopes to improve the team’s game to prepare for stronger opponents next weekend.

“Overall I think our effort on both ends of the ice needs to be reevaluated over the next week because this kind of effort for next weekend’s game is going to have a different result,” Underwood said.

The Flashes beat the Lakers 4-3 Friday night. Saturday night’s game against the Colonials was much more aggressive, ending with the Flashes winning 4-2 after a great deal of time in the penalty box from both teams.

Kent State will face University of Michigan-Dearborn (17-6) this Friday and Saturday night at the Kent State Ice Arena at 7:30 p.m.
