The Providence Friars are the 24th DI team to release their 2020 schedule. The Friars come into the 2020 season following a 2019 campaign that saw them go 7-9 overall and 3-2 in the Big East. Providence ended their season with a loss to Georgetown in the Big East semifinals.
|2/15||Providence||Bryant||Ocean State Cup|
|2/29||Brown||Providence||Ocean State Cup|
|3/28||Providence||St. John’s||Big East|
2/1 @ Boston U.
One of the best, but highly underrated, early season contest has been this battle between inter-state teams separated by about 53 miles. The Terriers have won each of the last four meetings between these two, including three straight one-goal victories. Providence will be looking to break that streak in 2020.
2/29 @ Brown
The Friars will face their two Ocean State Cup foes in the mont of February, including a meeting on the road against Brown to end the month. Last season, the Bears won 7-9 with Jack Kniffin scoring two straight in the fourth to help seal the deal. Providence’s only win over Brown was in 2018, winning 12-11 in overtime.
3/14 vs Hofstra
In a literal game of runs, Providence edged the Pride 11-10 last season. Dan Axelson scored the game-winning goal for the Friars with just under six minutes left in the game. It was the Friars first win over the Pride since 2016.
4/6 @ Georgetown
Providence will be looking for revenge against the Hoyas after losing twice to them last season, including a season-ending loss in the Big East semifinals. In both contest, Providence had a lead, but Georgetown forced a comeback in the second half to secure the win.
