V-Reds To Face Wildcats

It appears that the Varsity Reds will be heading to Durham, New Hampshire on Saturday, October 5th for an exhibition game against the University of New Hampshire Wildcats. UNH head coach Dick Umile recently announced their full schedule for the upcoming season and they will kick off their campaign at the Whittemore Center Arena against the defending CIS champions.

The Wildcats are coming off of a decent season in 2012-2013 season as they went 10-8-3 in Hockey East play and appeared in their 17th NCAA tournament in the last 20 years, eventually falling in the 2nd round.

This would mark the 5th meeting all-time between the schools with the Wildcats holding a 3-1-0 advantage over the V-Reds. New Hampshire won the last meeting 3-0 in 2011 with the Varsity Reds picking up their lone win in 2007 with a 4-3 decision.

If the last few years are any indication we can probably assume the Varsity Reds will be playing at least one other game against NCAA competition this fall.
