Circle These Dates

  • 2/9 (vs. Wagner): The two teams played to a triple overtime thriller two years ago, which went in Manhattan’s favor. Now, the Seahawks have a new head coach in Bill McCutcheon and hope to change their program around for the better.
  • 2/19 (vs. Lafayette): Manhattan jumped ahead early on Lafayette in last year’s meeting, but the Leopards clawed back to tie things up at nine entering the final quarter. But goals from Trevor Pelletier and two from Brandon Grinnell were the only tallies in the fourth quarter to give the Jaspers the win.
  • 2/23 (vs. St. Bonaventure): This might be the best game for Manhattan to get their first MAAC win in over two years. And it comes with a first-year team joining the MAAC. Maybe that will help jumpstart the Jaspers’ run to making the conference tournament?
  • 3/5 (vs. Hartford): Another overtime game from two years ago, which was also won by Manhattan. This one only needed two extra sessions, but they didn’t meet last season. Hartford is looking to get back to where they were back in 2016.
  • 3/16 (at Siena): Last year’s matchup against the Saints involved the closest margin for Manhattan in conference play. Siena has a new head coach in Liam Gleason, but does lose Chris Robertson on offense.
