Circle These Dates

  • 2/16 (vs. Hobart): Signs pointed to Siena possibly turning a corner at the end of the 2017 season. They did carry a little of that late season success into the 2018 regular season with a big opening day win over the Statesmen. Keenan Cook ended a 5-0 Hobart run that tied the game with 12:13 left in the fourth quarter. This will also be Liam Gleason’s regular season debut as head coach of the Saints.
  • 2/23 (at UMass Lowell): A hard fought game in Loudonville last season resulted with the Saints taking the victory in overtime after Nick Casner tied the game up with 50 seconds left. Chris Robertson had six assists while goalie Anthony Tebbano had 15 saves to outduel Hunter Braun’s 20.
  • 3/23 (at Canisius): Despite winning their first two games that were decided by a goal, Siena was on the wrong end of that margin in their first two conference games against Quinnipiac and Canisius. It was a tightly contested matchup that saw Siena have the largest lead of the game with three goals in the first half. The Golden Griffins came back and Ryan McKee’s goal with 2:03 left decided the game. That was the last of his four goals in the contest.
  • 3/30 (vs. Quinnipiac): After Siena took a 4-3 lead in the first quarter, both teams exchanged 6-0 runs that lasted until the end of the third quarter. After two Bobcat goals, Brian Prunty tied things up with 5:45 left in regulation for the Saints, but Matt Frost completed his hat-trick with 4:27 to go in the game to give Quinnipiac the win.
  • 4/6 (at Marist): The Red Foxes jumped out of the gate early with a 6-0 lead against Siena last year. The Saints did make things interesting later on, but it wasn’t enough as Marist held on for the win. Robertson finished with five goals, while Jake Weinman had six goals for the Red Foxes. Robertson graduated this offseason, which is a tough loss for Siena.
