Key Games

2/11 @ Quinnipiac: The Drew Kelleher era at UMass Lowell officially gets underway on February 11th when the River Hawks travel to Quinnipiac for their season opener in what will be a game of two teams trying to bounce back from two-win seasons last year. It’ll be an interesting look at what to expect from this squad under its new staff.

3/18 @ UAlbany: UMass Lowell suffered three one-goal losses last season, one of which came against the Albany Great Danes in a 15-14 contest. The River Hawks open league play against the Danes and will be looking to flip the script from last season and earn what would be a huge victory to start league play.

4/1 vs Binghamton: Last season, UMass Lowell defeated Binghamton 9-7 in a game that saw the River Hawks take a 7-2 lead at the half and hold on through the final buzzer. Scoring a win over the Bearcats again this season could be huge and possibly push the River Hawks into the postseason picture.
