Key Games

2/11 vs UMass Lowell: The Bobcats will open the season up against the UMass Lowell River Hawks for the second consecutive season. Last spring, the Bobcats defeated the River Hawks in a 15-14 contest. Meeting all but one year since 2018, each of the games between these two has been decided by an average of 1.25 goals.

3/11 vs Canisius: Quinnipiac recorded one win in league play last season and that lone victory came against the Canisius Golden Griffins in a 15-10 contest that saw Dylan Donnery put up seven points (3G/4A). With both likely sitting in similar spots in the MAAC, a win over the Griffins could be crucial is the Bobcats want to take that step forward.

3/25 vs Marist: The last two weeks of March present the biggest challenges in MAAC play for the Bobcats. The first of those is against the Marist Red Foxes, who have proven to be the most consistently talented team in the league. Quinnipiac fell 17-10 to the Red Foxes last spring. A win here would be huge for this program that wants to climb back to the top of its conference.
