Games to Circle

2/13 vs Army West Point: The Minutemen have opened against the Black Knights every season since 2014, which was the last time that UMass secured a win in the series. Last season, UMass was blown out, 17-4. However, Army secured an overtime victory, 12-11, in 2019. This year’s contests should be a tight one with UMass returning a heap of talent, including fifth-year guys.

3/9 @ UAlbany: Last season, UMass took down UAlbany, 17-11, in one of the better midweek contests of the season. UMass held just a one-goal, 9-8, lead over the Danes before the Minutemen went on an 8-4 run in the second half, including four consecutive goals in the fourth quarter to help secure the victory.

4/30 @ Delaware: UMass ends the season on the road against Delaware in a game that could have serious postseason implications, as far as conference tournament seeding is concerned. The last time the Minutemen and Blue Hens faced each other, which was in 2019, UMass went on a 3-1 run in the fourth to secure the 11-9 victory.
