Games to Circle
4/3 vs Vermont: During the last full season (2019), UMBC and Vermont met twice. Vermont won their first meeting 12-11 in a double overtime contest, but the Retrievers upset the Catamounts in the America East championship game, winning 14-13. With how close their past few contest have been, the Retrievers and Catamounts could produce another close on in 2021.
4/17 vs UMass Lowell: One of three overtime contest for the Retrievers last full season, the River Hawks gave took the Retrievers to overtime in a late April contest and almost eliminated them from gaining an America East tournament bid. Dylan Rhatigan scored with 5:07 in the fourth to put UMass Lowell ahead late, but a Trevor Patschorke goal with two seconds in regulation forced overtime for UMBC. Isaac Bot scored the game-winner in overtime for the Retrievers.
