Key Games

2/8 @ UMass Lowell

The Bobcats and River Hawks have just faced each other twice in history (2019,2018) and the River Hawks have won both meetings. Last season, Quinnipiac almost came back from down 11-6 early in the fourth, but Cory Highfield scored with under five minutes left to secure the win for UMass Lowell. The Bobcats will be looking to take down UMass Lowell after two close losses in their previous two meetings. 

3/14 @ Marist

Quinnipiac opens up MAAC play on the road against the Marist Red Foxes, who beat them twice last season. The defending MAAC champions, Marist defeated Quinnipiac 12-8 in the regular season and 15-14 in the MAAC championship game. The all-time series between these two programs is a 6-6 tie. 

3/17 @ Hartford

In-state foes, the Bobcats and Hawks have met a total of 19 times with Hartford holding a 10-9 series lead. Last year was one of the closest contest between the two as Quinnipiac was able to walk away with the 17-16 victory in overtime. Jake Tomsik scored the game-tying and game-winning goal for the Bobcats.
