Men’s Lacrosse Game Nationally Televised

The men’s lacrosse team will host Marist on Friday, April 26 at 4:00 p.m. at the Demske Sports Complex. The game will be nationally televised on ESPNU.

The game has huge playoff implications for the Griffs. A win clinches a tie for first place and gives Canisius the No.1 seed in the MAAC Lacrosse Tournament. A loss could eliminate Canisius from post-season play. The Red Foxes currently sit on top of the league with a 5-1 record, while Detroit has finished its season at 5-2. The Griffs and Quinnipiac are both 4-2 with one game remaining. A Canisius victory on Friday would give the Griffs wins over all of the other first place contenders and provide the Griffs the top seed in the tourney. A loss could plummet Canisius into fifth place, one spot out of post-season play.

Lloyd’s Food Truck will be on site at 3:45 p.m. prior to the start of the game.

Tickets are $5 for faculty and staff with school ID.
