Friday, December 13

Merrimack at Union
Here are two teams that have struggled throughout the entire first half. It’s hard to imagine that one win can turn their season around, but nothing like going into break on a high note.

Jim’s pick: Union 4, MC 3
Dave’s pick: MC 3, Union 2

Saturday, December 14

Dartmouth at Northeastern
The Big Green had quite an upset victory last Saturday over Cornell. But that win is surrounded by a 5-1 loss to Colgate and a 2-2 home tie against Bentley. Maybe they are in position to pull off another upset, but this will have to occur away from the comforts of home.

Jim’s pick: NU 4, Dartmouth 1
Dave’s pick: NU 4, Dartmouth 2
