Rest, relaxation and a bit of chicken noodle soup are what most of the No. 20 Boston University men’s hockey team could use this weekend.
They are dedicated to the game of hockey, making weekly trips off campus just to practice, and they compete regularly against nationally ranked rivals like Boston College, Northeastern University and the University of Connecticut. In fact, they often defeat high-powered club teams who receive funding from their schools for transportation, coaching and other costs.
Junior forward Holly Lorms of the Boston University women’s ice hockey team will return to campus Wednesday after suffering a neck injury during a game versus the University of Maine Saturday. She will have to wear a neck brace for a month.
A new season is nearly here for the No. 12-ranked Boston University lacrosse team. The Terriers will open the 2010 campaign on the road today against the University of Massachusetts-Amherst at 4 p.m. at Richard F. Garber Field.
