2/22 vs Sacred Heart: Fairfield’s home opener will come on February 22nd against in-state foe Sacred Heart. Playing each of the past three seasons, the Stags have a three-game winning streak against the Pioneers. Last season, Fairfield defeated Sacred Heart 19-16.
3/18 @ Hofstra: Fairfield opens CAA play on the road against the Hofstra Pride in a contest that could very well end up having postseason implications. Fairfield defeated Hofstra 12-10 last season in a contest that saw them out 30 shots on cage to the Pride’s 16.
4/1 vs Drexel: The Stags open the month of April on the road against the Drexel Dragons, whom they fell 19-18 against last season. With where both sit coming into the season, these two could both be fighting for one of those last spots in the conference tournament.
