Circle These Dates

  • 2/16 (vs. Princeton): Last season nearly began with a bang for the Hawks against the Tigers. Despite being down 5-1 at halftime, Monmouth scored seven of the 10 goals in the second half to force overtime, but Riley Thompson’s double overtime tally avoided a near upset for Princeton. Bryce Wasserman departs for the Hawks, while Michael Sowers returns for the Tigers.
  • 3/2 (at Saint Joseph’s): The battle of the Hawks has happened for the past five years since Monmouth began their program. All five games have gone in favor of Saint Joseph’s. Could that change this year with St. Joe’s going through a ton of changes to their roster?
  • 3/23 (at Detroit Mercy): Monmouth was eight seconds away from a big conference win over the Titans before Brennan Kamish scored the game-tying goal to force overtime. In the extra session, Kamish scored the game-winner with 3:14 left in OT for the win. Detroit Mercy also took the rematch in the MAAC semifinals.
  • 3/30 (vs. Canisius): This was Monmouth’s second ESPNU game in as many seasons, and a very entertaining one if you enjoy watching some of the other conferences play. The Hawks scored three goals in the final quarter for a notable conference win over the eventual conference champion Griffins.
  • 4/27 (vs. Siena): Could this be Monmouth’s possible ESPNU game if there is one? It’s set for a Saturday afternoon for now, but could always get flexed in the near future. It’s the regular season finale for both teams and it could mean big things for the Hawks as well as Siena, who are led by new head coach Liam Gleason.
