Sienas’ 2023 Schedule
|4/22||Mount St. Mary’s||Siena||MAAC|
Mount St. Mary’s, NJIT, Sacred Heart, VMI, Wagner
Army West Point, UAlbany, Holy Cross, Monmouth, St. Bonaventure, St. John’s
2/25 vs UMass Lowell: The Siena Saints end the month of February hosting the UMass Lowell River Hawks. Last season, the Saints defeated the River Hawks 14-10 to earn what was one of their three non-conference victories. The past four games between these two have been decided by an average of 1.75 goals.
3/29 @ Canisius: All three of Siena’s MAAC losses last season came by one goal. That included a 9-8 loss to the Canisius Golden Griffins. With how close the MAAC can be, expect a tight one again between these conference foes once again. And it could very well have postseason implications.
4/12 vs Marist: Siena will welcome in the Marist Red Foxes for what could be a game that helps decide the MAAC postseason picture. The Red Foxes beat the Saints 11-10 last season in a game that saw nine lead changes.
