Circle These Dates

  • 2/9 (vs. Quinnipiac): The matchup itself was a thriller last season with the River Hawks taking down the Bobcats in overtime. But this year’s meeting might be a little more interesting considering what happened to Quinnipiac in the fall. We’ll see how the Bobcats look as well, considering the team has been suspended for the majority of fall practices.
  • 2/23 (vs. Siena): It should have been a River Hawk win, but the Saints came back with six of the game’s final seven goals for the victory. Chris Robertson recorded six assists in the win, but fortunately for UMass Lowell, he’s graduated.
  • 3/5 (at Dartmouth): Another overtime matchup from a year ago, but should have not gone into overtime. Similar to the Siena game, the River Hawks gave up a lead in the second half and had to play two overtime sessions. But Sean Tyrrell came up big with the overtime winner. The Big Green could show some signs of progress this season.
  • 4/6 (at Hartford): This time, UMass Lowell was on the other side of the second half comeback. They were down three with 3:11 left in the third quarter, but the River Hawks recorded a 6-0 run to take home the win over the Hawks. It was also a very big win for their America East Tournament chances.
  • 4/13 (vs. Stony Brook): Last year’s matchup began with a game of runs. The Seawolves got out to an 8-0 lead before UMass Lowell scored seven in a row. After a Stony Brook goal, the River Hawks scored three straight to take a one-goal lead before the Seawolves scored three straight of their own and win by a goal. Stony Brook has some potential for this season as well.
