After a preseason scrimmage against Siena College on August 22, Hofstra will open the regular season with four road games beginning at Albany on Friday, August 29 and at Colgate on Sunday, August 31. The Great Danes of Albany recorded a 16-5 mark in 2013 including a 4-1 victory at Hofstra. The Pride has not faced the Raiders of Colgate since an 8-1 Hofstra win in Hamilton, NY on 2011. The following weekend the Pride travel to Yale University in New Haven, CT for matches against Sacred Heart on Friday, September 5 and the host Bulldogs on Sunday, September 7. Hofstra faced both teams on Long Island last season, topping Sacred Heart, 3-1 and edging Yale, 4-3 in overtime.

Hofstra begins its home schedule at the Hofstra Field Hockey Stadium on Wednesday, September 10 when the Pride host the Stags of Fairfield. The two teams met in 2013 with the Stags posting a 3-2 victory in Connecticut.

Following the Fairfield game, Hofstra heads out on the road for six games, including the Pride’s only in-season tournament, to wrap up the month of September. It all starts at the Vermont Catamount Classic on Saturday and Sunday, September 13-14. Hofstra will face the Vermont on Saturday before squaring off against Maine on Sunday. 

The following weekend, Hofstra returns to New England for contests at UMass at Lowell on Friday, September 19 and at New Hampshire on Sunday, September 21.
