Previewing Quinnipiac’s 2019 men’s college lacrosse schedule

Quinnipiac had a very rough fall with the suspension of the program and the firing of Eric Fekete.

John Hassett

The Quinnipiac Bobcats are the 67th team in our 2019 schedule preview series and the seventh team from the MAAC. The Bobcats finished 9-6 in 2018 and 6-0 in MAAC play. Quinnipiac fell to Canisius in the MAAC semifinals last season. Earlier in the fall, the program was suspended for “alleged violations of the student conduct policy.” Head coach Eric Fekete was relieved of his duties as replaced by Mason Poli as interim head coach for the season.

Here’s their entire 2019 schedule:

Circle These Dates

  • 2/9 (at UMass Lowell): The first game of the season is worth watching just to see how Quinnipiac comes out and plays. The River Hawks had their best season in their short history at 8-8 a year ago, with one of their wins coming against the Bobcats in overtime. UMass Lowell scored eight of the game’s final 10 goals to win.
  • 2/16 (at Brown): Quinnipiac was a good team last season and had expectations to be a favorite to win the MAAC yet again. Mike Fletcher scored four times, including the overtime winner, when both teams met last season in Hamden. The Bears had a four-goal run to take a one-goal lead early in the fourth quarter before the Bobcats ended up trying and winning the game later on.
  • 3/9 (at Wagner): It wasn’t a competitive game last year with Quinnipiac taking the 11-3 win. But both teams got new head coaches this fall in different fashions. And it may appear that both programs are going in different directions. There’s still some mystery with how the roster will look for Quinnipiac come the spring and how the players will respond to their cancelled fall.
  • 3/23 (vs. St. Bonaventure): The second conference game for the Bobcats are against the Bonnies, who are entering their first season as a Division I program. It’s a team that’s filled with freshmen and inexperience, but they should develop some confidence and experience at this point in the year. Don’t be surprised if Randy Mearns and company can pull off a few upsets, even if they don’t beat the Bobcats.
  • 4/20 (vs. Monmouth): With what’s happened in the fall, it’s hard to remember how good Quinnipiac was against the MAAC. They went undefeated in league play before falling to Canisius in the conference semifinals. Their game against Monmouth was one of the better matchups in the MAAC last year, with Ryan Corcoran scoring the game-winner in double overtime. Noah Lode had 15 saves for the Hawks in the loss.
