WOMEN'S HOCKEY GAME SCHEDULED FOR NOV. 14 AT VERMONT IS POSTPONED

WAKEFIELD, Mass. – The Women’s Hockey East Association announced Friday that the women’s ice hockey game scheduled Saturday, Nov. 14 between the fourth-ranked University of New Hampshire and homestanding University of Vermont has been postponed due to a number of UNH student-athletes with flu-like symptoms.

The league game between the two schools will be made up at a later date mutually agreed upon by school administrators.

“Our directors anticipated that this situation would arise this season,” said Hockey East Commissioner Joe Bertagna. “The decision to postpone the game came only after input from the proper health authorities at the University of New Hampshire, as required by recently enacted league policy.”

New Hampshire has a five-game unbeaten streak (3-0-2) and is 8-1-3 overall as well as 4-0-1-0 in Hockey East. The Wildcats return to action Nov. 18 (7 p.m.) at Harvard University. UNH’s next home game is Nov. 21 (5 p.m.) against Rensselaer.
