The Siena Saints are the 46th DI team and second from the MAAC to release their 2022 men’s lacrosse schedule. The Saints are coming off a 2021 campaign in which they went 0-8 (0-6 MAAC) against a conference-only schedule.
Saints’ 2022 Schedule:
|2/23||Army West Point||Siena|
Army West Point, UAlbany, Dartmouth, LIU, Providence, St. John’s, UMass Lowell
2/12 @ LIU: Siena’s last win came on February 8th, 2020 by way of a 14-12 defeat of the LIU Sharks in what was the first-ever meeting between the two programs. The Saints will once again open up against the Sharks after playing a conference-only schedule a year ago and will be looking to get back in the win column. With both teams having fairly exciting offenses, this could be a high-scoring affair.
4/2 @ Monmouth: The Saints faced the MAAC champion Monmouth Hawks twice last season and lost by one goal each time out. Monmouth edged Siena 7-6 in overtime in March before beating them 12-11 in the MAAC Quarterfinals. A win over the Hawks would be huge for this Saints program and help them get back on track.
4/9 vs Manhattan: Last season, Siena fell 13-12 in overtime against the Jaspers. It was one of four one-goal losses for the Saints and one of two coming in overtime. Siena tied things up at 12 with just 21 seconds left in regulation to cap off a three-goal, fourth-quarter run to force overtime. Manhattan won with 27 seconds remaining in the first overtime period. We could very well see another close one between these two in 2022.
