Weekend Lax Preview

Weekend Lax Preview

WINCHESTER, Va. – Sprint Field at Shentel Stadium will play host to a pair of excellent lacrosse games Saturday afternoon as the SU men's and women's teams host their first (and only) doubleheader of the season.

The SU women get things started with a 1:00 ODAC Tournament semi-final round contest against Randolph-Macon while the Hornet men will take on another set of Hornets, the Lynchburg Hornets, in a 4:00 ODAC regular season tilt.

The latter game is the season finale for the SU men and will be their Senior Day contest. Brett Holmes, Bryan Pope, Kyle Robb and Tyler Quinn will all be honored prior to the contest.

Lynchburg is ranked fourteenth in the nation.

The women's contest is historic – it is the first ODAC semi-final hosted on campus and the first tournament lacrosse game hosted on the Sprint Field at Shentel Stadium turf since 2009.

Coach Lindsey Lutz' club will be looking for revenge as Macon, the sixth seed in the tournament, downed SU 10-8 last Wednesday.

The Hornets then defeated Virginia Wesleyan 15-6 in the regular season finale to lock up the second-seed in the ODAC Tournament.

R-MC combines a strong offense – 14.12 goals per game – along with a stingy defense. Goalkeeper Nicole Woodworth is second in the league in saves, 149, and second in save percentage, .505.

Midfielder Emily Lynch is fourth in the league in both goals, 58, and points, 76.

Lynch will be facing a defense that is arguably even tougher than the one she faces every day in practice. Shenandoah is second in the league in goals against, giving up just 8.40 per contest with goalkeeper Ashley Cross stopping 47.4 percent of the shots on goal against her.

Cross is second in the league in goals against average.

The Hornets 12.87 goals per outing is fourth in the league with the squad's 51.1 percent shooting percentage tops in the conference.

In the men's game, Shenandoah fans will see a Lynchburg team that while just 6-2 in the ODAC, owns a season opening victory over Salisbury, 13-12, as well as an 11-9 win over perennial CSAC power Cabrini in early March.

The LC Hornets also lost a pair of 12-11 games to national powers Gettysburg and Stevenson, the latter in overtime.

In ODAC play, Lynchburg split 9-8 games with Roanoke and Washington and Lee, winning the latter, and lost 12-8 to Hampden-Sydney.

LC's other five ODAC wins came by an average of 15.2 goals.
