Key Games

2/8 @ Merrimack: Holy Cross opens the year with four consecutive road games in February. One of those contests comes against the Merrimack Warriors. Last spring, the Warriors topped the Crusaders 11-9 in a game that saw Holy Cross put together a strong second-half effort. They will be looking to flip that this spring.

4/18 vs UMass Lowell: The Crusaders’ lone win last season came on the road against the UMass Lowell River Hawks by a score of 15-14. This year, Holy Cross will welcome the River Hawks to  Worcester and will be looking to score another win against the in-state foe.

4/28 @ Colgate: Holy Cross went winless in Patriot League play last season. However, they did play in some close games. The closest of which was the Crusaders’ season-ending 14-12 loss to Colgate. In 2023, Holy Cross will once again end the year against Colgate. After coming close against what’t been a tough Colgate squad, J.L. Reppert’s squad will be looking to flip the script this sprong.
