The Ivy squads were also active in exhibitions: Brown fell 4-3 to Acadia before Harvard topped them by the same score; Dartmouth handled Dalhouise 6-3 and Yale downed them by a 3-1 margin; Cornell bettered Western Ontario 5-4 in overtime and Princeton pummelled Plattsburgh 8-0.
Next week sees the first conference game on the ECAC slate as travel partners Harvard and Brown face off in Providence. Most of the non-conference action is with members of the CCHA: Clarkson host a pair with Bowling Green, Dartmouth play a couple at Illinois-Chicago, St. Lawrence play two at Lake Superior state, Vermont skate to Oxford, Ohio for two games with Miami University, and Cornell is at Michigan state Friday night. In other contests, RPI and Union visit Army on consecutive nights, Yale travel to Colorado Springs for two games at Air Force, Princeton visit Hockey East's UMass-Lowell on Saturday, and Colgate are north of the border Sunday for a matinee with Ottawa.
With the ECAC hockey report, this is Joe P------k, Mr. Squishy sports.
