Circle These Dates

  • 2/15 at Bellarmine: St. Bonaventure is still looking for their first win in program history. It could come against a Bellarmine team with a new head coach for the second straight year. Andrew Whitley will lead a Knights team that also loses SoCon Rookie of the Year Riley Seay who transferred to Loyola over the summer. But Bellarmine still has some good players in Ian Miller, Morgan Macko, and Landon Trout returning on offense.
  • 3/4 at Mercer: Outside of Hampton who went winless against three Division I teams last year, the two worst teams in Division I in terms of record were St. Bonaventure and Mercer. The Bears only had one win in 2019, coming against VMI, but they lost four other games by a single goal. Mercer also has a stud at the faceoff X in Ashton Wood who went 64.4% on draws in his freshman campaign.
  • 3/28 vs. Quinnipiac: Quinnipiac finished as the runner-up in the MAAC Tournament, falling to Marist in the conference championship game. They do lose a lot of senior scoring from a year ago in Foster Cuomo and Mike Fletcher, but they do return players such as Jake Tomsik on offense and Nick DiMuccio in goal. The Bonnies lost by five last year after giving up the first four goals of the game to the Bobcats.
  • 4/4 vs. Manhattan: These two teams played in an unusual February conference game last season. The difference in the game was Manhattan’s 6-2 second quarter that gave them a 9-4 lead entering the half. Luke Hanson finished with a game-high six points and Sean MacKinney had five points for the Jaspers, but Jackson Rose finished with four points for St. Bonaventure. This could be the Bonnies’ first conference win if it hasn’t happened before April.
  • 4/11 at Monmouth: After the first quarter, it looked like St. Bonaventure could be on their way to their first ever win after a 3-0 frame. But Monmouth came back with a 5-0 run, including a 4-0 second quarter, to take a lead they would not relinquish. The game finished with the Hawks winning 7-5 even with a dominant game from FOGO Ian Weinberg.
