Fittingly lifted from the ashes by the Phoenix of North Jersey, the hibernating hockey season will begin anew on January 18th. The Phoenix take their 1st trip to DC for games with American & Navy. From there, three big weekends remain, packing in 26 thrilling contests that will ultimately set the stage for February's Women's Championship!
It's a 2 for 1 weekend! Six teams duke out doubleheaders that will have a big impact on what's left of the season. Navy visits a UVA team struggling for life. AU plays two against IUP. Villanova takes on Rutgers in their 1st ever match-up. Rowan and UPENN, the top dogs in D2, face off for a rematch of last semester's UPENN stunner.
It's a weekend for bragging rights. Rowan vs Phoenix for New Jersey. Slippery Rock and Villanova in PA. Liberty and UVA challenge one another in Virginia. The Naval Academy rematches both Maryland & Towson in Annapolis. Plus Saint Joe's takes on Columbia in a fight that could determine who goes to playoffs.
The season takes its final breaths as teams battle for their spot in the standings. Towson visits UVA for the 1st time. Liberty plays the final DVCHC game of their season in Maryland. SJU & Columbia could be playing to see who goes to playoffs & IUP, UPENN & Rowan compete for a 1st round bye. Last time IUP visited Philly both games were determined by 1 goal, one of them in OT. Don't miss!
