Saturday, the Bobcats traveled to Burlington, VT to take on the University of Vermont (UVM) Catamounts. After enjoying views of the frozen Lake Champlain and doing some rink hopping, the Bobcats came out strong and led 1-0 after one period. Difficulties in the final period resulted in UVM securing a 4-1 victory.
After returning home after a long road trip, Bates came out roaring at home against Smith on Sunday, dominating control of the puck. Scoring contributions by many first-years led to a 5-1 victory for Bates.
Next weekend, the Bobcats will travel to Western Massachusetts to take on Smith again before returning home to face UConn.
