Well after two weekends of hockey, things arenít looking too bad for this first year program. A 2-0 loss and a 1-1 tie last weekend vs RIT and then another 1-1 tie this weekend vs RPI are not a bad start. RPI has beat RIT 7 times in their last eight meeting, several games were high scoring wins, so a tie vs the Engineers is great for the Crusaders. The first year players are playing very well and the returning skaters are accepting the challenge and experience of playing at the highest level.
Next weekend the team faces its first significant test, playing Providence and UCONN.
