As the American Collegiate Hockey Association regular season winds down, we'll provide weekly updates of the Central States Collegiate Hockey League.
The CSCHL has a new leader after last weekend's two series, both of which ended in sweeps.
Ohio swept Robert Morris-Illinois despite losing forward Gianni Evangelisti, its leading point-scorer, and defenseman Shawn Baird . The pair were absent in Friday's game, but the Bobcats still won 2-1.
Ohio sealed the sweep with a 4-2 win on Saturday and moved into first place over Lindenwood, who did not play any games last weekend.
Illinois swept Iowa State with a 4-2 win on Friday and 3-2 overtime win on Saturday.
