A Few More Exhibition Games

Looks like the V-Reds will play a few more NCAA teams early in October. Dave Ritchie writes in today's Gleaner that UNB will visit UMass on Oct. 3, then play Vermont the next night as part of an 8-game pre-season schedule that includes a tilt vs STU for the President's Cup.

Don't underestimate the importance of these games. They're used not only as a measuring stick and as part of camp to get ready for the season, but they also help with intangibles such as team bonding and even allow the coaches to simulate playoff/nationals-style atmosphere.
