The Dons look to get back on track after suffering a pair of losses two weeks ago to fall to 4-3-0 on the year. Sophomore Conor Chinn has provided the scoring spark, netting a team-leading four goals and assisting on another score so far this season. Senior Daniel DeGeer and freshman Jeff Penna have also contributed in the attack, with each player scoring two goals.
