Ahhhh, finally.. college hockey in the DMV is back in full swing and we had some massive games over the weekend including two Chirpin’ DMV top 10 match-ups, but instead of writing a bunch of useless shit you don’t care about here, let’s jump right into the rankings.

#1 – Liberty (ACHA D2) 24-3-1-0

Previous Rank: 1

Rank Change: ↔

Highest Rank: 1

The D2 Flames…once again, pitched a weekend sweep beating Rowan in both games at LaHaye Ice Center, and that’s no small feat against a 13-3 squad. The Flames have four total games left in league play, so assuming they go four and ohhhhh so sweet, then they should end up with the #1 ranking in ACHA D2 Southeast

Weekend Results: FRI and SAT vs Rowan: 3-2 OTW, 8-1 W

Next Up: BYE

#2 – Liberty (ACHA D1) 20-3-0-0

Previous Rank: 3

Rank Change: ▲1

Highest Rank: 1

The D1 Flames are moving back up into the top two in the power rankings after dummying the Delaware Ducks scoring 15 on the weekend while only allowing 5. They’re up against a Stony Brook team this weekend who they’ve already beat 7-3 and 2-1 as they look to add to their current seven game winning streak.

Weekend Results: FRI and SAT vs Delaware 5-2 W, 10-3 W

Next Up: 1/25-1/26 @ Stony Brook (12-6-0-0)

#3 – Catholic University (DVCHC American) 12-1-0-1

Previous Rank: 2

Highest Rank: 2

It was a bye weekend for the Cards and they move down a spot after the D1 Liberty team continues to dominate. The Cards have two games coming up this weekend, the first vs UMBC, a team they should absolutely wipe, and then a big one Sunday as CUA looks to avenge their only loss of the season.

Weekend Results: BYE

Next Up: 1/24 vs UMBC (0-6-0-0), 1/25 @ York (3-0-0-1)

#4 – Stevenson (NCAA D3) 12-2-0-1

The NCAA green horses continue to climb as they go undefeated on the weekend to get right back on track after last weekend’s results. They messed around and outscored their opponents 12-4 on the weekend, including this BEAUTY below by Nick Gray.

Weekend Results: FRI @ Lebanon Valley 7-3 W, SAT @ Elmire 5-1 W

Next Up: 1/24-1/25 vs Fredonia (3-8-4)

Previous Rank: 4

The only Chirpin DMV Top 10 match-up this weekend was a rematch between the Colonials and PAtriots. This GW squad won the last round in a shootout, but dropped this one in regulation to start the new year with a loss. They’ll look to bounce back this weekend against rival Georgetown.

Weekend Results: FRI vs #6 George Mason 6-8 L

Next Up: 1/25 vs Georgetown (5-7-0-0)

#T5 – George Mason (ACHA D3) 16-3-0-2

Previous Rank: 6

Rank Change: ▲1

Highest Rank: 4

Mason’s win got them to a nine game win streak. Their last loss you might ask? Nov 1st against that very same George Washington team they just beat when they dropped the game in a shootout. They Mason squad is staying hot and moving up the rankings.

Previous Results: FRI @ #4 George Washington 8-6 W

Next Up: BYE

#7 – Virginia Tech (ACHA D2) 15-4-2-2

Previous Rank: 7

Rank Change: ↔

Highest Rank: 3

VT is staying put at seven this week. Yes, they lost a top 10 battle to rival Virginia, but VT has impressed me a hell of a lot more than UVA has this season. The next day, they turn around and get right back in the win column vs Richmond.

Previous Results: FRI @ #9 UVA 2-6 L, SAT @ Richmond 3-0 W

Next Up: 1/24 @ Wake Forest (8-3-0-1), 1/25 @ UNC (1-3-0-1??)

#8 – Virginia (ACHA D2) 9-4-0-0

Previous Rank: 9

Rank Change: ▲1

Highest Rank: 7

Wahoo hockey is moving up a spot after defeating the Hokies on Friday night this past weekend which is a great win for them against a rival. This weekend they have another daunting task as they prepare to host a damn good NC State team.

Weekend Results: FRI vs #7 VT 6-2 W

Next Up: 1/24 vs NC State (16-3-0-0)

#9 – NAVY (ACHA D1) 12-5-0-3

Previous Rank: 10

Rank Change: ▲1

Highest Rank: 10

The Midshipmen are FINALLY something besides #10 as they continue to win hockey games. The win streak is now at five in a row as they look to stay hot this weekend with a Temple rematch in Annapolis, then a roady rematch vs Drexel in a game that saw Navy come out victorious 2-1.

Previous Results: FRI @ Temple 4-1 W, SAT @ PSU Berks 8-1 W

Next Up: 1/24 vs Temple (8-11-0-1), 1/25 @ Drexel (17-2-0-5)

#10 – Christopher Newport (ACHA D3) 13-6-0-0

Previous Rank: 8

Rank Change: ▼2

Highest Rank: 8

Captains are back this weekend as they prepare to face ECU for their final two home games of the season. They fall due to teams winning games, and the Captains.. well, not playing.

Previous Results: BYE
