The Mount St. Mary’s Mountaineers are the 46th DI team to release their 2020 men’s lacrosse schedule. The Mountaineers come into 2020 following a 2019 campaign where they went 9-7 overall, 7-1 in the NEC. The Mountaineers hosted the NEC tournament as the top seed, but lost to Robert Morris in the NEC championship.

2/15 @ Towson
Part of the Mountaineers 0-4 start was a 12-7 loss against the Towson Tigers in a Friday night tilt. The Mountaineers were able to put together multiple two-goal runs late in each quarter, but couldn’t cap off the comeback. With both squads losing some significant talent from last season, this contest should be a good once again in 2020.
3/3 vs Richmond
Last season, the Mountaineers pulled off a pretty big midweek upset as they took down the Richmond 12-11 on the road. This upset win came after Richmond has just upset Notre Dame and given Duke a pretty big scare. Luke Frankeny scored with a second left to force overtime. Chris DiPretoro sealed the upset win with a goal in the overtime period.
4/25 vs Robert Morris
These two squads split their two meetings in 2019, with the Mountaineers taking the regular season contest and Robert Morris getting the win in the NEC championship game. Again, this one is likely to be a good one again in 2020, especially considering how close both of their meetings were last season.
