Key Games

2/11 @ Saint Joseph’s: The Pioneers will open the season against former NEC for Saint Joseph’s, who won the league last season. It will be the first of many test early-season tests for Sacred Heart as their first month of the season features some real challenges that will test this team.

4/12 vs Quinnipiac: One of the three wins that Sacred Heart earned last season was against the Quinnipiac Bobcats, whom they beat 13-10. It was the first meeting between the two Connecticut foes since 2013. Now conference opponents, it’ll be interesting to see how this series develops and in 2023 should be another tight contest.

4/15 vs Mount St. Mary’s: Former NEC foes, the Pioneers lost to Mount St. Mary’s in a tight, one-goal (14-13) contests last season. Each of the past three meetings between these two have been won by Mount St. Mary’s and by an average of 2.3 goals. Sacred Heart will be looking to get back into the win column against the Mountaineers this spring. Expect the contests between these two to remain tight in the MAAC.
