South Hockey Prepares for Thursday's West Match-up
ANCHORAGE, Alaska--Thursday night may provide an opportunity to see what happens when an unstoppable force meets an immovable object.

In their last appearance, Orizotti grabbed two goals and an assist to lead the Wolverines past the Eagles, 6-2.
Currently, West sits in a two-way tie for third place in the Cook Inlet Conference with 10 points. South sits atop the standings with a perfect 9-0 record inside conference play, and has 18 points to show for it.
