That is not true. Sacred Heart is D1 but only started offering scholarship monies last year in an effort to improve their program. They were a group of walk-ons for years. It is difficult to get D1 caliber girls to come play hockey without offering scholarship $$ and tuition at 56K/year. They will get better but it will take time. As for Maine, they are a very talented collection of girls from all over the globe with recruits from Russia, Latvia, Sweden, Denmark, Finland, Czech Republic as well as our Canadian neighbors. They roster only 8 girls from the US. I would expect them to win their league handily with that type of reach, correct?
My error. Sacred Heart is a member of the D1 New England Women's Hockey Alliance.
Quinnipiac @ Maine this weekend...QU split with Providence, winning 2-1 and losing 3-2....Maine coming in with a 2-0-0 record and two shutouts versus Sacred Heart. Two game series both games at 2pm/Friday and Saturday. Go Maine!!
This will be the TEST for the women's team this upcoming weekend HOME games...Friday versus Northeastern(6pm) and on Sunday versus BU(2pm)….both top 4 teams in Hockey East year after year.
Tough weekend for the women...2 losses at home to NU and BU. Another tough weekend on the road this week with games at UNH and BC. Noticed both Zikova and Pribylova out of the lineup...injuries or healthy scratches? Thought Nicole Pateman did well on defense. 2-3-1 record, figured it would be better then that...same old-same old, need to beat the top teams in Hockey East...still not doing it.
