Games to Circle
3/6 & 3/20 vs/@ Mount St. Mary’s: The Statesmen and Mountaineers will face each other twice this season with only the second contests counting as a conference game. Their last meeting in 2019 saw the Mountaineers put together a strong second half comeback after being down 9-4, but Hobart was able to hang on for the, 11-8, win.
4/3 @ Bryant: While the two didn’t face each other last season due to the season being cut short, their meeting in the last full season (2019) was a tight one. Hobart had to rally back from being down 7-4 late in the first half and 7-5 at the half to secure a narrow, 12-11, victory.
4/10 vs Saint Joseph’s: Two of the most highly regarded teams in the NEC coming into the season, this is one of the biggest matchups in the conference. And their last three meetings (2019, 2018, 2017) have all been one-goal games. Hobart won the 2017 matchup, 8-7, while the Hawks took the 2018 meeting, 6-5, and 2019 contest, 12-11, in overtime.
