NEW HAVEN, Conn. – Albertus Magnus College men's lacrosse head coach Darryl Delia (sixth season) has announced his team's schedule for the upcoming 2018 season. In total, the Falcons will take to the field 16 times this spring, highlighted by nine Great Northeast Athletic Conference (GNAC) tilts and nine contests in front of their home crowd at Celentano Field.
Albertus Magnus is coming off a 3-12 campaign that featured victories against Becker, Wheelock and Daniel Webster. This season, the squad will look to a strong core of returners and some new talent to move up in the GNAC standings.
The first game of the season for the Falcons will be a road contest at Wheelock on March 3. The Falcons then return home for a five-game homestead against Emerson (3/5), Mitchell (3/7), Lyndon State (3/9), Mount St. Vincent (3/19) and Purchase (3/21).
Following that contest, the Falcons travel to Mount Ida (3/24) and will wrap up the month with a road contest at Mass. Maritime (3/28) and a home match against Rivier (3/31).
Albertus begins conference play in April with seven consecutive GNAC games. The team opens the month with back-to-back home games against Anna Maria (4/4) and Norwich (4/7) before hitting the road for games at Johnson & Wales (4/11) and Saint Joseph's of Maine (4/14). From there, it's a home game against Lasell (4/18) and a road game at Emmanuel (Mass.) (4/20).
The Falcons will close out the regular season on the road at Regis (Mass.) on April 25.
The Great Northeast Athletic Conference Men's Lacrosse Championship is set to begin on Saturday, April 28th. The semifinals will be held on May 1st and the championship is scheduled for May 5th.
