Men's lacrosse set to face Catholic in NCAA first round

INDIANAPOLIS- The third-ranked Salisbury University men's lacrosse team received an at-large bid into the NCAA Division III lacrosse tournament as it will host Catholic University on Wednesday, May 11, the organization announced on Sunday.

Salisbury last played on April 30 as it hosted York College of Pennsylvania in the Capital Athletic Conference championship game and fell to the Spartans, 10-9. Nick Garbarino led the offensive efforts for Salisbury with three goals, while in net, Colin Reymann stopped 10 shots.

Catholic won its way into the NCAA tournament as it won the Landmark Conference tournament to receive the conference's automatic bid. Tim Keith was the hero that sent Catholic to the tournament as he scored the overtime game winner when the Cardinals took down Elizabethtown College in the Landmark championship contest.

The game will be the 11th all-time meeting between the two programs as the Gulls are 10-0 heading into Wednesday's game. In those 10 victories, Salisbury has never been held below 18 goals, while Catholic has never scored more than six goals.

The last time the schools met was when Catholic was a member of the CAC and Salisbury hosted the Cardinals in a first round CAC playoff game and took down the Cardinals, 27-2, during the 2007 season.

The game time for Wednesday is to be determined. Log on to www.suseagulls.com for more information as it becomes available.
