Circle These Dates

  • 2/25 at Georgetown: Last year, Mount St. Mary’s began the season 0-4. Their final loss in that winless drought was against Georgetown, but it was nearly a win. The Mountaineers were tied at halftime and up by one at the start of the fourth quarter, but the Hoyas started the final quarter on a 4-0 run en route to a two-goal victory. Jake Carraway led Georgetown with six points and will be back to lead their offense.
  • 3/3 vs. Richmond: A surprising midweek upset last season, especially with Richmond coming off an upset against Notre Dame and another tough battle with Duke. The Spiders appeared to be on their way to eeking past the Mount, but Luke Frankeny scored a wild goal with a second left to force overtime, where Chris DiPretoro sealed the upset win. Both those guys had four goals each.
  • 3/7 vs. Utah: The Utes were known for their very hot starts in games last season, but did tend to cool off later in the game. This happened yet again as the Mountaineers fought back from a 6-1 deficit to taking the lead late in the third quarter on a Joe Bethke tally. Utah regained the lead later in the fourth, but Brendan McCarthy and Joe McMahon registered goals as Mount St. Mary’s took home the win.
  • 3/28 at Saint Joseph’s: This was last year’s regular season finale and the win gave Mount St. Mary’s the right to host the NEC Tournament. It was a low-scoring affair, but the Mount took control of the second half by outscoring the Hawks 4-2 and Dylan Furnback saving 20 shots for the one-goal win.
  • 4/25 vs. Robert Morris: Mount St. Mary’s and Robert Morris split their two meetings in 2019, with the Mountaineers taking a 14-11 decision thanks to six straight goals in the fourth quarter after allowing eight straight to the Colonials. But the curse of hosting the NEC Tournament continued as Robert Morris fought back from a five-goal deficit in the third quarter to force overtime with 39 seconds to play before Tyson Gibson scored the overtime winner to end Mount’s season.
