Key Games

2/25 @ Marist

Last season, Marist got the best of Hartford in a narrow 14-13 victory. Hartford held a 11-10 lead heading into the fourth, but Marist was able to go on two two-goal runs to seal the deal. Meeting early in the season again, this could be another tight contest between these two squads.

3/14 @ Stony Brook

Hartford’s first win of the season last year came in their America East opener against Stony Brook. The Hawks were able to get ahead early, take a 9-5 lead into halftime, and ward off a late comeback by the Seawolves to claim the win. Owen Trepta had three goals in the win to lead the Hawks. 

4/7 vs Dartmouth

One of Hartford’s four wins last season came on the road against Dartmouth in a snow midweek game in April. Ty Thompson and Tyler Corpora scored two goals in the final minute of the game to secure the 12-11 win for the Hawks. Meeting again in a midweek contest in April, the Hawks will look to get a non-conference win late in the season, again.
