While it has taken a bit longer for teams and conference to get their schedules together for the 2021 season due to the Coronavirus outbreak and various restrictions surrounding the virus, Schedule release schedule has finally begun!
The Marist Red Foxes are the 23rd DI team and seventh from the MAAC to release their full 2021 schedule. Marist comes into the 2021 season after going 3-3 during the shortened 2020 season.
Marist’s Full 2021 Schedule:
- Eight-game conference-only schedule.
- Initial game doesn’t count towards conference standings.
Games to Circle
3/6 & 4/17 vs/@ Detroit Mercy: The Red Foxes hold a 6-7 lead in the all-time series between these two, but the Titans have been victors of the past two meetings. Detroit Mercy won 14-10 in 2018 and 12-11 in 2019, serving the eventual conference champs their only conference loss. The two will meet twice this season in two contests that should be very competitive and feature two of the presumably better teams in the conference.
3/13 vs Quinnipiac: This Marist team is viewed by many the most talented in program history. They are also technically still the reigning MAAC champions (2019) with last season getting cut short. Quinnipiac was the team they beat to win that title. The two will square off during the second week of the MAAC schedule and could very well see each other in the MAAC title game again this season. This is one of the most anticipated series across the MAAC in 2021.
4/3 @ Siena: Marist has beaten Siena every year since 2014. However, this year’s contests will feature two of the presumed best and most experienced offenses in the MAAC. Marist had the top scoring offense in the conference last season, averaging 13.7 goals per game, while Siena has the third-best, averaging 11.83 goals per game. Both teams return their top five scorers from last season, which includes multiple fifth-year returnees.
