Coming off of 5-3 and 4-1 losses to Colgate, UConn women’s ice hockey is looking for its first win of the season this weekend at the University of Maine.
Early last season, the Huskies played Maine at the Mark Edward Freitas Ice Forum and secured their first win, 3-0, in the second game of the two–game set. UConn is 0-4-1 thus far this season. All previous games, however, were road games, and the Huskies now find themselves in territory they are accustomed to.
UConn also had trouble last season on the road, with a 0-11-4 record. The Huskies are looking to snatch up their first road win in two seasons at the Harold Alfond Sports Arena in Orono, Maine.
UConn is 4-1-1 versus the Black Bears since 2010.
The Huskies will be looking for more of the same this time around in the hopes of locking up that first victory.
Of their first five games, only one was lost by more than two goals, while another ended in a 4-4 tie. UConn has faced Union, Rensselaer and Colgate so far this season.
Maine is 0-2 on the season, with 5-2 and 6-1 losses to Quinnipiac University, and a lone exhibition 4-0 win over Dalhousie University.
The games between the Huskies and Black Bears will take place this weekend, Oct. 20 and Oct. 21, at 7 p.m. at 3 p.m. at Maine.
