Games to Circle
2/20 @ UMass: The River Hawks open the season against in-state and system foe, UMass. The Minutemen have won all four meetings between the two. However, last season was the closest contest in the series, as UMass won 11-9 and had to hold off a second half comeback from the River Hawks.
3/6 & 4/10 @/vs Vermont: During the last full season (2019), one of the River Hawks’ two conference wins came in upset fashion of the Catamounts. UMass Lowell went on a six-goal run from late in the first through early in the third to help secure their first ever win over the Catamounts, 8-4.
3/27 vs NJIT: The River Hawks and Highlanders will meet as conference foes for the first time this season. It’ll be their first meeting since 2018. UMass Lowell holds a 4-0 series lead over the America East newcomer and defeated them 9-3 in their last meeting.
