Circle These Dates

  • 2/23 (at Sacred Heart): Who’s the better team from Fairfield? Right now, it seems to be Sacred Heart. The schools are about 10 minutes apart from each other and are playing each other in a regular season matchup for the first time in 14 years. Both teams have two talented offensive players in Colin Burke for the Stags and Max Tuttle for the Pioneers.
  • 3/9 (vs. Georgetown): Last year’s Big East champions will look to continue their momentum into 2019, despite losing some key pieces that include goalie Nick Marrocco. Fairfield is 1-4 all-time against Georgetown, but defeated the Hoyas in their last meeting in 2016.
  • 3/23 (vs. Villanova): Both teams had an incredible overtime game last year, with the Wildcats coming out on top. Villanova had a two-goal lead with 1:28 left in regulation before Joe Rodrigues and Dylan Beckwith scored 15 seconds apart to send the game into overtime. However, Danny Seibel came through for the Wildcats in overtime. Fairfield has lost their last three meetings to Villanova, with their last win coming back in 2015.
  • 3/30 (vs. Delaware): Fairfield was very competitive in CAA play, despite only winning one win to show for it, which was a 5-4 win over Hofstra. The Blue Hens could be a rising team in the conference under second-year head coach Ben DeLuca, who got his first conference win in their CAA opener last year thanks to Charlie Kitchen’s tally with 3:12 left in the game.
  • 4/6 (vs. Towson): Another one of Fairfield’s tight matchups that went in favor for the opposing team. The Stags held on to a one-goal lead early in the fourth quarter, before goals from Jean-Luc Chetner and Luke Fromert gave the Tigers an 8-7 win. If the Stags continue to play CAA opponents tight, but with the end result in their favor, they could contend with UMass in the conference.
