Hornets and Spartans: Round 2 in NCAA Third Round

Hornets and Spartans: Round 2 in NCAA Third Round

Lynchburg, Va. -- For the second time this season, Lynchburg Men's Lacrosse will make the five hour trip north to battle the Spartans of York College. They will face off in the third round of the NCAA DIII Men's Lacrosse Tournament at 4:00pm this Saturday, May 13, 2017.

The Hornets and Spartans took to the field against one another on March 4th in their joint "One Love Foundation" game. During that contest though, no love was lost in the back and forth slugfest that ensued as each team traded the lead five times, with Lynchburg scoring last on an Evan Lombardo goal with just 1:04 remaining in double overtime. It was the first of only three losses for York, coached by Brandon Childs, Lynchburg graduate of 2004 and joined this season by Class of 2015 and National Runner-Up defenseman with the Hornets, Eric Lombardo.

The athletics department in partnership with the Alumni Relations office is pleased to provide ONE FREE TICKET per alumni, faculty/staff or student at the NCAA Third Round game.
