I finally made up some ground on Arlan, though if I had picked a St. Lawrence sweep, I’d be only one behind him. Overall last weekend, I went 17-1-1 last week (.921), while Arlan went 15-3-1 (.815). Overall on the year, I am 54-29-7 (.638), while Arlan is 56-27-7 (.661). Many of the top squads have bye weeks due to players being at the Four Nations Cup, but we’ve got a few picks for you.

Friday, November 9

Yale at Clarkson
Candace: Clarkson is going to be tough to beat this year. Clarkson 4-1
Arlan: Yale seems much improved this season, but then so are the Golden Knights. Clarkson 3-1

Princeton at Rensselaer
Candace: Like Arlan, I have no idea who to pick in this one. Princeton hasn’t won since beating Rober Morris, though finally showed signs of being able to score against Colgate. Princeton 3-2
Arlan: I have no handle on a Princeton team that doubles up on RMU, but ties Colgate after being dismantled by Harvard. Rensselaer 3-2

Brown at St. Lawrence
Candace: St. Lawrence may have turned a corner this past weekend. St. Lawrence 3-1
Arlan: Goals figure to be scarce in this one. St. Lawrence 2-1

Boston University at New Hampshire
Candace: Even without Poulin, I can’t see any way the Terriers lose. Boston University 4-1
Arlan: Nothing more fun than trying to figure out a BU game when Poulin isn’t playing. Boston University 3-1

RIT at Colgate
Candace: Colgate has played well in its last couple of games, and RIT is coming off a bye week. RIT 4-2
Arlan: I think this is an absolute toss up as Colgate’s rookie goalie has been playing well and the Raiders are at home. RIT 3-2.

Friday-Sunday, November 9 and 11

Maine at Bemidji State
Candace: Maine has been struggling, but so has Bemidji. Avoid the reverse split problem. Bemidji State 3-1, 3-2
Arlan: The Black Bears probably get a split, but I have no idea of the order so I’ll just pick the home team. Bemidji State 4-2, 2-1

Saturday-Sunday, November 10-11
Robert Morris at Penn State
Candace: This could be the stepping stone to a fierce series against Mercyhurst for Robert Morris. Robert Morris 3-2, 3-1
Arlan: Paniccia could steal one for Penn State but the odds are better that she doesn’t. Robert Morris 4-1, 3-2

Vermont at Northeastern
Candace: Vermont is showing signs of being a better team this year, but Northeastern is one of the top squads in the conference. Northeastern 3-1, 4-1
Arlan: No Coyne, Savage or Povova, but Catamounts will still have fewer bodies available. Northeastern 2-1, 4-1

Saturday, November 10

Connecticut at Providence
Candace: Another mismatch. Connecticut has not been playing that well. Providence 4-1
Arlan: Connecticut has actually been a little better than I expected. Providence 4-2

Sunday, November 11

New Hampshire at Providence
Candace: Providence is on the uptick, while any momentum New Hampshire had from beating Boston College is a distant memory. Providence 4-1
Arlan: Friars have won eight of the last nine in this classic rivalry. Providence 3-1

Monday, November 12

Boston College at Dartmouth
Candace: The Eagles are starting to take flight in the last few games. Boston College 4-1
Arlan: Rutter favors BC, while KRACH likes Dartmouth. Boston College 5-3
