DMV College hockey games for the weekend of 10/11-10/13, 2019
Alright, we’ve got a bit of an update from last weeks weekend preview. I THINK, we’ve got every college team in the DMV added in here now, and after hours of digging through Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, websites, looking under rocks, you name it, we’ve (again, I think) found every schools actual schedule, standings, info, you name it. If we’re missing a team or have an error in a record, or schedule or anything like that, please let us know. The way we’ve set up records for teams, since every league and conference does it differently, is WIN-LOSS-TIE-OTL/SOL, so a team can have a 4-2-3-1 record. We’ll do all the compiling ourselves, but for the sake of power rankings and weekend previews, it helps if every teams record in these blogs all have a pattern to em. Also, if you see a ranking next to a team, it’s their official Chirpn’ DMV ranking. So, with all that being said, we’ve got a MASSIVE weekend for our DMV college teams including a couple showcases, and some big time head-to-head match-ups.
VT and JMU Host ACCHL Virginia Invitational
The Hokies and the Dukes will be hosting the Atlantic Coast Collegiate Hockey League Virginia Invitational this weekend at the Hokies home barn, Lancerlot Sports Complex. Four DMV teams will be competing as the #6 Maryland Terps (2-1-0-0) and Virginia Cavilers (2-1-0-0) will be traveling down to meet up with James Madison (0-3-0-0) and the #5 Hokies (4-1-0-2) Also at the tournament will be the University of Kentucky and Louisville. As we start to hit it hard on the 2019-2020 season, we’ll start seeing a lot more DMV teams face off against each other. The big one of the weekend will be Sunday at 2:30, when #5 VT and the #6 Terps go at it. We’ve also got Wahoo Hockey in the mix, now that we’ve found some info on them and realize they’re off to a good start, but only get a shot at one local team this weekend on Saturday vs the Terps. Check out the full schedule below.
Navy Sets Sail x3
All three Naval Academy teams are in action this weekend and you can catch both the of the Men’s teams with a full 3 day weekend slate at McMullen Arena in Annapolis.
#10 Men’s D1 (2-3-0-1) will hit the ice Friday night vs College of New Jersey at 7:30 PM, a team that Navy swept last season winning both games by scores of 4-1 and 5-0, just the win Navy needs to hit the .500 mark. They’ll be right back at it again on Saturday at 7:30 again as they welcome Penn State Berks, who squeaked past George Mason last weekend in OT, and has let up 22 goals in their last 3 games.
Men’s D2 (2-2-0-0) will welcome in Xavier for a weekend series, the first game late on Saturday at 10:10 PM, following the Navy D1 team, and the second taking place at 1:30 PM on Sunday, giving you three straight days of Navy hockey in Annapolis. Xavier comes in with an undefeated 4-0-0-0 record, which would give Navy huge consideration in the power rankings if they can pull off a sweep.
Women’s D2 (5-0-0-0) looks to keep the hand hot as they head to East Lansing for a weekend series vs Michigan State. This weekend will be the Navy ladies 6th road game of only 7 played so far this season… no like it makes any difference seeing as they’re a +38 goal differential on the road so far.
All Navy home games at McMullen Arena can be see on the livestream below.
Mason in Need of 4 Points
#9 George Mason (2-3-0-1) is looking to turn their season around quick, but they’ve got a hell of weekend in front of them as they welcome in Rowan (2-0-0-0) and Pitt-Johnstown (2-1-0-0) into Prince William on Friday and Saturday, respectively. Rowan, in their first two games, have spanked their opponents 8-0, one of those teams Pitt-Johnstown, who GMU will play Saturday. The Patriots will get a good since of where they stand as a team on Friday night if they can upset Rowan and then complete the weekend sweep.
Three Liberty Teams in Action
Two of the Men’s teams and the D1 ladies team will be in action this weekend, including Men’s D2 hosting the Liberty Fall Showcase at their home barn LaHaye Ice Center.
#3 Men’s D1 (5-0-0-0) is heading north this weekend as they’ll be taking on Rhode Island, a 3-1-0-0 team who’s yet to lose on home ice in the early going this season. A weekend sweep for the Flames would keep them high in the power rankings.
#1 Men’s D2 (7-0-0-0) is hosting the Liberty Fall Showcase as mentioned earlier, where they’ll be taking on UMass Lowell Friday night, MSU Denver on Saturday, and finishing the weekend vs NC State on Sunday.
Women’s D1 (4-1-0-1) is staying home this weekend and will be squeezing in a two game series vs UMASS on Saturday and Sunday before the men’s showcase get’s underway each day. The drop the puck at 1:30 pm on Saturday, and 9:00 am Sunday.
The Flames Men’s D3 (2-3-0-0) and Women’s D2 (2-0-0-0) both have bye weekends.
Green Horses are Back
The #2 Stevenson Mustangs (4-0-0-0) are back in action after a bye weekend, but only have one game slated as they travel to Rider on Friday night to try and keep the undefeated streak alive. Stevenson dropped their only match-up last season with Rider, 3-4. They’ll look to avenge that loss and get to 5-0-0-0.
Packed Barn in Chesapeake, VA
Another showcase will be taking place this weekend in the ACCHL D3 Virginia Division, as FIVE DMV teams will be competing at Chilled Ponds all weekend, the home of the Whalers. American (0-1-0-0) will be taking on ECU, Charleston, and the Citadel. Radford (0-0-0-0) will also be in attendance as they’ll face the Citadel, ECU, and the College of Charleston. Surprisingly, none of the five DMV teams will be playing each other this weekend at the showcase, but, well.. actually that makes no damn sense. Old Dominion (2-2-0-0) faces off vs High Point, Application State and Mary Washington, William & Mary (1-1-0-0) plays College of Charleston, High Point, and Application State, and lastly, VCU (0-0-0-0) will be taking on Application State and The Citadel.
DMV Showdown in the Women’s DVCHC South
We’ve got a handful of DMV match-ups this weekend as the bulk of the women’s DVCHC South Division will be hitting the ice. Towson (1-0-0-0) will play Montclair State on Saturday, and face off with rival Maryand (1-1-0-0) on Sunday. The Terps will also be taking on Loyola of Baltimore (0-0-0-0) on Saturday. Loyola makes host’s Montclair State on Friday night for their season opener. George Washington (0-2-0-0) isn’t able to get in on the DMV fun this weekend as they head out of town for two road games vs Rowan and West Chester.
Tiger’s Seek First Dub
Towson (0-6-0-0) is seeking their first win of the season as they host Cleary University for a double header weekend at Ice World on Friday at 8 PM and Saturday at 6 PM. Cleary has yet to play a game this season, so hopefully the Tigers can catch em flat-footed.
Top 5 Gulls Look to Climb
The Salisbury National Team (5-1-0-1) looks to climb the power rankings as they host University of Pitt-Johnstown on Friday night. If Salisbury can get a win against a team that #9 George Mason plays the day after, we could be looking at a serious shift in the power rankings.
Colonials Look to Climb
#7 George Washington (2-1-0-0) looks to climb the power rankings as they hit the road for two games this weekend. They’ll be traveling to Millersville Friday night for a 7:15 puck drop, then head to Philly on Saturday with a game with St. Joseph’s. Two big wins could see GW’s ranking stock sky rocket this weekend.
Newly Discovered Newport
So, we screwed up here, but it’s early in the season still. We did another deep dive into college teams after the power rankings came out and we discovered Christopher Newport, down in Newport News, VA, and holy jumpin’ are they off to a hot start at (5-2-0-0) They host Delawares D3 team this weekend whop are 3-2-0-0, and a weekend sweep will deff get them some love in next weeks power rankings.
SEE YA NEXT WEEKEND
