The Wildcats were ranked eighteen in this game when they traveled down to Binghamton, New York. This was the America East conference opener, which resulted in a tie, 0-0. This was graduate student goalie Joseba Incera’s first shutout of his career at UNH. 


Sept. 26 vs. Harvard

At the time, the 24-ranked UNH had a successful game against the Harvard Crimson at Wildcat Stadium.
