Members of Arkansas' club hockey team celebrate after winning the South Eastern Collegiate Hockey Conference championship Sunday in Pelham, Ala.

The Razorbacks won a conference championship Sunday - sort of.

Arkansas' club hockey team beat Alabama 2-1 to win the South Eastern Collegiate Hockey Conference tournament in Pelham, Ala. It was the second consecutive conference championship for the team, which uses the university's athletics nickname but is not a varsity sport.

Arkansas (29-5) scored two goals in the third period to beat Alabama. Marty Sundstedt scored a power play goal to give the Ice Hogs the lead after Forest Mudgett tied the game. It was the Razorbacks' 10th consecutive win.

The Ice Hogs have a pair of home games against Oklahoma on Friday and Saturday to close out the regular season. The team plays its home games at the Jones Center in Springdale.

Postseason regionals for the program begin Feb. 21 in Lincoln, Neb.
