Men’s hockey dominates St. Joseph’s College

In the beginning of a busy stretch during the second half of the season last Thursday, Bates men’s hockey earned a resounding 10-2 victory over St. Joseph’s College. Although the Bobcats missed an alluring opportunity to compete against a dominant Southern New Hampshire due to treacherous travel conditions, they have plenty of important challenges in their near future.

Men’s hockey keeps pace with league, Poised for second half breakout

The Bates men’s hockey team endured a tough three-game stretch against some very good teams over the weekend, as the Bobcats lost 4-2 to Bowdoin on Thursday, tied Merrimack 1-1 on Friday, then lost a heartbreaker 6-5 at Holy Cross in a brutal Sunday night game. The game against Bowdoin (who sent some of their varsity players to play) was not a league contest, so has no consequences for Bates’ postseason aspirations. Only the matchups against league-leading Merrimack and Holy Cross matter for the standings, and the loss/tie combination moves Bates’ league record to 0-1-2.

Although Bates disappointingly allowed two Harvard goals in the final four minutes, their power play success, cohesiveness, and grittiness are all positives they can carry into the season.
