Key Games

2/9 vs Quinnipiac

These two programs have faced each other just two times, and each contest has seen UMass Lowell grab a very close win, including an overtime finish in 2018. Last season, UMass Lowell was able to survive a four-goal Quinnipiac run in the fourth quarter to secure the 12-10 win. 

2/22 @ Siena

Last season, the Saints defeated the River Hawks, 16-15, in overtime. The past two meetings between these two have been very tight contested games, decided by just one goal. In 2020, UMass Lowell will be looking for their second win all-time against the Saints and first since 2017 when they won 18-13. 

3/28 @ Vermont

UMass Lowell’s biggest win last season came in upset fashion over the Vermont Catamounts. The River Hawks went on a six-goal run from late in the first through early in the third to help secure their first ever win over the Catamounts. 

4/17 vs UMBC

The River Hawks only two wins over the Retriever have come in these two programs last two meetings. Last season, UMass Lowell beat UMBC 13-12 in overtime with Isaac Bot scoring the game-winner. This year’s contest may have a little something extra attached to it with UMBC being the reigning America East champions.
