The men’s hockey team is staying competitive as they head into the brunt of their season matchups. A recent win against Plattsburgh leaves the team holding a 6-6-1 record at week seven. This fairly even distribution of wins and losses holds true regardless of game site, as the team’s home records stands at 3-2-1.

Although the team has yet to secure a lasting winning record, the team’s performance has improved tremendously in comparison to the past few years. Last year’s squad acquired only four wins overall, yet finished with 17 losses and three ties. The preceding 2016-2017 scores look similar, generating a 3-19-2 record.

Captain Owen Powers ’20 verbalized this. “We have already eclipsed what we were able to do last season. The team now has a winning culture where everyone knows they have to hold themselves and their teammates accountable to the standards we identified in the fall,” he said.

He added, “We have made strong strides from last season and will continue to improve. Now that the team is confident in our abilities we are now learning to win and expect more out of ourselves every weekend.” 

The Panthers will face both Colby and Bowdoin this upcoming weekend at home on Friday, Jan. 18 and Saturday, Jan. 19, respectively.
