Men's Lacrosse to Battle Albany For America East Crown and Automatic NCAA Tournament Bid on Saturday Night
An automatic bid to the NCAA Tournament is up for grabs as familiar rivals UMBC and Albany face off in the America East title game on Saturday night at UMBC Stadium. The opening face-off takes place at UMBC Stadium at 7:30 p.m. The Retrievers are seeded No. 1 for the third time in five years (2005, 2006) and will face Albany for the third straight year in the finals. UMBC triumphed at home in the 2006 championship game, 19-10, while Albany returned serve last year with a 15-14 decision in Albany, N.Y.
