The Siena Saints are the 46th team in our 2022 men’s college lacrosse schedule preview series and the third team from the MAAC. Siena went 0-8 overall in 2021 and 0-6 in MAAC play in a conference-only schedule. The Saints fell to Monmouth in the MAAC quarterfinals.


Here's their entire 2022 spring schedule:

WHO'S IN?

  • Providence Friars (2/19)

  • Army West Point Black Knights (2/23)

  • UAlbany Great Danes (3/2)

  • Dartmouth Big Green (3/5)

  • Marist Red Foxes (3/26, did not meet last year due to COVID problems within Marist)

  • Holy Cross Crusaders (4/23)

WHO'S OUT?

  • Detroit Mercy Titans (11-9 L, Titans moved to ASUN)

  • Hobart Statesmen (26-9 L in 2020)

  • NJIT Highlanders (12-5 W in 2020)

  • Fairfield Stags (21-12 L in 2020)

CIRCLE THESE DATES

  • 3/2 at UAlbany: I'm a big fan of seeing this game happen between the two Capital Region programs. It'll be the first time they've gotten together for a regular season game since 2016 and there's plenty of Great Dane ties at Siena. The entire coaching staff (excluding undergrad assistants) are UAlbany alums, led by head coach Liam Gleason.

  • 4/22 at Monmouth: Last season could've been a lot different for the Saints. Seven of their eight games were decided by two goals or less. Four of them were decided by a goal with two needing overtime. Both Monmouth games were decided by a goal, with the regular season meeting being decided in overtime. Does Siena have enough to turn those close losses into wins?

  • 4/30 vs. Quinnipiac: The second half of Siena's conference schedule is all at home, including the regular season finale against the Bobcats. Quinnipiac went on a three-goal run in the third quarter en route to a 7-5 low-scoring game. Hoping we see more than 12 goals combined this year.
