Key Games

2/22 vs Manhattan

Since 2016, the Seahawks and Jaspers have split their past four meetings with each team winning every other year. Last year, Manhattan edged Wagner 11-10. The Jaspers used a few multi-goal runs midway through the game to help them get ahead and secure the win. If the pattern holds, Wagner should get their third win at home against the Jaspers in the past five years. 

2/29 @ Mercer

Wagner is coming off a two-win season and Mercer off a one-win season. While Wagner is 0-4 against the Bears, their last meetings saw Mercer win 6-5 and this year’s matchup could be similar with both teams in a very similar boat after 2019. 

3/28 vs NJIT

The Seahawks’ two wins last season came against Bellarmine and NJIT. In fact, Wagner is 5-0 all-time against the Highlanders, defeating them every year since their first meeting in 2015. The Seahawks will be looking to keep that win streak going in 2020.
