Key Games

2/28 @ Wagner: One of the Hawks’ three non-conference wins last season came at home against the Wagner Seahawks in a midweek contest. The Hawks won 9-7 in what was somewhat of a goalie battle between the two squads. Playing midweek again, it could be another interesting one between these two.

3/11 @ Delaware: Monmouth opens up CAA play with arguably the toughest contest of its conference slate, facing the defending league champion Delaware Blue Hens on the road. These two programs are very familiar with one another, having played almost every year since 2017. Delaware beat Monmouth 17-6 last season. The Hawks will be looking for their first win over the Blue Hens.

3/25 vs Stony Brook: Another tough league contest will come at home in late March when the Hawks host the Stony Brook Seawolves in what will be their first home CAA contest. The Seawolves and Hawks are both new members of the league, adding more intrigue to this matchup. It will be the first time the two programs have met.
