WEST LONG BRANCH, N.J.- Monmouth University’s women’s lacrosse team will play LeMoyne on Saturday afternoon in the NCAA Division I Play In Game.

The Hawks will face the Dolphins at 1 p.m. for the right to advance to the 2007 NCAA Division I Women’s Lacrosse Tournament. Saturday’s match is the second time in history the two teams have played each other, with the Hawks defeating LeMoyne in West Long Branch earlier this season by a score of 15-10.

“I'm proud of the team for all they've accomplished so far this season,” said head coach Kelly McCardell. “The team has worked extremely hard to attain our goals; we've accomplished one to win NEC's and now we're focusing to achieve another and make NCAA's.”

“LeMoyne is a talented team and I'm expecting a competitive game. Saturday will be a true test as both teams will be gunning for the opportunity to represent their conference in the NCAA Tournament.”

The Dolphins and Hawks have identical 15-4 overall records, with the Blue & White going 7-1 in conference play and LeMoyne going a perfect 7-0 in the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference. LeMoyne reached the Play In Game with a 14-13 overtime win over Marist in the MAAC Championship.

Last weekend, Monmouth won its second straight Northeast Conference Championship by upsetting top-seeded Mount St. Mary’s in Emmitsburg, Md., 9-8.
