The Manhattan Jaspers are the fifth DI team to release their full schedule and second from the MAAC. This announcement follows the MAAC’s announcement on spring sports scheduling this morning. The Jaspers come into the 2021 season after going 3-3 during the shortened 2020 season.
Manhattan’s Full 2021 Schedule:
- Eight-game conference-only schedule.
- Initial game doesn’t count towards conference standings.
Games to Circle
3/20 vs Detroit Mercy: Manhattan is currently riding a five-game losing streak against the Detroit Mercy Titans, as they have lost to them every full season dating back to 2015. The Titans won their last meeting on 2019, 10-5. With both squads bringing back a lot of talent, this could be one of the more tightly contested contest between these two and one that could have postseason implications.
4/3 @ St. Bonaventure: In the first and only meeting between these two squads in 2019, Manhattan secured a 12-15 victory over the Bonnnies. While the jaspers held a sizable, 9-4, led at halftime, they had to ward off fourth-quarter comeback from the Bonnies, which helped cut the final deficit to just three goals, which was one of the smallest margins of loss for the then first-year program.
4/17 vs Siena: The Saints and Jaspers have met every full season since 2006, which was the last time Manhattan scored a win in their series. Siena won their 2019 meeting 15-12. However, Manhattan won the second half 10-2 after going on a 4-2 run in the third and 6-0 run in the fourth. With both squads bringing back a lot of talent and potentially vying for one of those final playoff spots, this one could be a very tight and hotly contested game.
