Key Games

2/15 @ Canisius

These two programs know each other very well after playing five times over the past four seasons, including a NCAA play-in game in 2018. Last season, the Griffins beat the Colonials, snapping their seven-gam win streak in the all-time series. Canisius scored two straight to help secure a 12-8 win last season, and with both teams in similar situations in 2020 this should be another great contest.

2/29 vs High Point

Last season, the Colonials gave High Point all they could handle with a double overtime thriller. High Point was able to squeak out a 16-15 win with Hunter Vines scoring the game-winner late in the second overtime period. This year’s meeting between these two has the potential to be another thriller. 

3/14 vs Hobart

Robert Morris won both of their meetings against Hobart last season, meeting in the regular season and the NEC championship game. In the regular season, Robert Morris won 16-15 in overtime. The Colonials finished regulation on a four-goal run and Matt Schmidt scored the OT game-winner. The Colonials defeated the Statsemen 11-10 in the NEC championship game, warding off a late-game comeback effort from Hobart.
