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 Monmouth Hawks are the only MAAC team that has yet to post their 2021 schedule on their athletics website. However, because of the conference going conference-only this season we do know what their full schedule is. Also, it is fully posted on the MAAC website. Monmouth comes into the 2021 season after going 2-4 during the shortened 2020 season. They are the 26th DI team and eighth in the MAAC in our schedule preview series.

Games to Circle

3/13 @ Siena: Since the program’s inception in 2014, Monmouth has only lost to Siena once. That loss came during that inaugural 2014 season. Since then, they have gone 5-0 against the Saints. During their last meeting in 2019, used three quarter, 7-0 run to help secure the 12-6 win. This year’s contests should be tougher with Siena returning a top flight offense. However, Monmouth’s strength coming into this season appears to be defense, again.

4/3 vs Quinnipiac: Both Quinnipiac and Monmouth and looking to bounce back in 2021 after bad starts to the shortened 2020 season. In each of the past three full seasons, this meeting has come down to one goal and twice they’ve gone to double overtime. In their last meeting in 2019, Monmouth put together a fourth quarter comeback but Quinnipiac was able to hold on for the 10-9 victory.

4/17 vs St. Bonaventure: During their first ever and last meeting in 2019, it was a fairly tight contest between the Hawks and Bonnies. St. Bonaventure took a 3-0 lead after the first quarter and looked like they could be on their way to a program first win. However, a 4-0 second quarter from Monmouth helped them to a 7-5 victory.
