Circle These Dates

  • 2/16 (at Notre Dame): The season openers for both teams were surprising to start. Detroit Mercy stuck with the Fighting Irish for much of the game, even taking a 6-4 lead with 8:11 left in the third quarter. But Notre Dame woke up with six straight goals to win by three. Bryan Costabile had five goals in the victory.
  • 3/6 (at Air Force): Both teams traded 4-0 runs with each other in their meeting a year ago at Titan Field. But despite trailing by a goal at the end of the Titans’ 4-0 run, Air Force scored four of the game’s final five goals to take the nonconference victory for their second win of the year.
  • 3/23 (vs. Monmouth): Detroit Mercy took each of the two meetings against Monmouth from last year, both of which were at Monmouth. In the regular season, Brennan Kamish scored the game-tying goal with six seconds left in regulation as well as the game-winning goal. In their MAAC semifinal rematch, the Titans came back from a 9-5 deficit with 8:31 left in the game and scored the final seven goals to advance to the conference title game.
  • 4/13 (vs. Canisius): The regular season meeting resulted in yet another fourth quarter run by the Titans to beat a MAAC opponent. Detroit Mercy scored the game’s final five goals with 11:53 left to beat Canisius by two goals. But the conference championship game will be the one that will linger. Not only did the Titans lose a two-goal lead, but they also make a huge mistake six seconds after the faceoff in overtime that resulted in Canisius winning the MAAC title.
  • 4/27 (at Utah): A familiar scenario for the Titans to end the 2019 regular season. For the second time in three seasons, Detroit Mercy will be on the road against a first-year program, this time against Utah. The Titans took on Cleveland State in Ohio back in 2017 and lost 13-6 to give the Vikings their first ever win against a Division I opponent. Chris Kolon will look to avoid that happening again this time around.
