The meet was held at the infamous Armory Track & Field Center in New York, which is known for its speedy track and banked turns.

The Blue Devils club hockey team couldn’t hold off the top-ranked William Paterson University on home ice, dropping their second game in a row 8-2.
“The positive is we’re not supposed to beat a team like Willy P and with that being said we’re gonna have to regroup and realize we’re not going to walk over teams, it humbles us a bit, getting beat this bad and hopefully we can learn from it and really play blue collar hockey,” said Ryan Stanley.
Following a loss on the road against the University of New Hampshire last weekend, CCSU came into the game looking to upset the Pioneers. However, with the game 2-0 in WPU’s favor less than two minutes into the first period it was evident the game was going to be an uphill climb.
