Circle These Dates

  • 2/8 at UMass Lowell: Now the second game of the season compared to the previous two seasons, Quinnipiac looks to get their first ever win over the River Hawks. Despite 17 saves from Nick DiMuccio and two five-point efforts from Jake Tomsik and Will Abbott, he Bobcats were unable to complete a second half comeback last season in Lowell.
  • 2/29 at Fairfield: After a short one-year hiatus, the two Connecticut schools will meet again in Fairfield. The Stags dominated their last meeting in 2018 thanks to an 8-1 first half, but much has changed in a couple of seasons. Both teams also have new head coaches in Mason Poli, who was Quinnipiac’s interim last season, and Andrew Baxter for Fairfield.
  • 3/14 at Marist: It’ll be a rematch of last year’s MAAC Championship held in Poughkeepsie. The Bobcats got out to a good start in the opening quarter, but Marist was able to take the lead in the second half and hold on late for another MAAC title. Marist’s starting close defense is gone, but the bulk of their offense remains as well as FOGO Peyton Smith.
  • 3/17 at Hartford: The team will be on short rest when they go back on the road to face off against another in-state opponent in Hartford. After a high-scoring first half that saw 19 total goals scored, the game eventually went to overtime where Tomsik scored the game-winner after scoring the game-tying goal late in the fourth. But Foster Cuomo, who finished with 10 points, and Mike Fletcher, who finished with nine points, are now gone.
  • 4/4 at Monmouth: This could be a potentially tough game and a big game in terms of MAAC standings. The Hawks just missed out on the MAAC Tournament a year ago for the first time since 2014, but they don’t lose that much from last year’s squad. Quinnipiac never trailed in the game, but Monmouth was pretty close to forcing overtime late in the game and always kept it close. Cuomo and Fletcher each had six points to power the Bobcats, with Tomsik and Matt Frost adding an assist to complete Quinnipiac’s scoring.
