ORONO - The teeth of Maine women's hockey's conference schedule came early in the season last year, that will again be the case this season.

Maine released its 2018-2019 schedule earlier today. The Black Bears kick off conference play the weekend of Oct. 20 when they travel to play Northeastern and Boston University.

 

Maine will try to beat UNH at home on Oct. 26. The blue and white blew through the first half of their conference schedule last year en route to their best season in program history.

 

Head coach Richard Reichenbach is looking forward to the difficult stretch again with this years schedule.

 

"If you do well it's a great opportunity to build confidence immediately some of the younger players and the returning players. On the other hand obviously if you don't do well in those you're kind of behind the eight ball," Reichenbach said.
