Irish To Open BIG EAST Tournament Versus Georgetown On April 27

April 22, 2007

Notre Dame, Ind. - The Notre Dame women's lacrosse team will open play in the first-ever BIG EAST Women's Lacrosse Tournament on Friday, April 27 at the Carrier Dome in Syracuse as the number four seed. The Irish will face the top-seeded Georgetown Hoyas in the 5:30 p.m. semifinal game while number two seed Syracuse will face third-seeded Rutgers in the second semifinal at approximately 8:00 p.m. or 45 minutes after the first game.

The Irish, who were 11-5 overall and 3-2 in the BIG EAST, fell out of a first-place tie with their 8-7 loss on Saturday to Rutgers. Georgetown (9-6, 4-1) took first by knocking off Connecticut, 15-9, on Sunday. The Hoyas and Syracuse (10-4, 4-1) finished in a tie for first in the BIG EAST with a 4-1 mark, but Georgetown won the tiebreaker, having beaten the Orange earlier this season, 9-8 in double-overtime.

Rutgers (12-3, 3-2) finished tied for third with Notre Dame but take the third seed after defeating the Irish on April 21, scoring the deciding goal with 8.8 seconds left in the game.

The Irish handed Georgetown their lone loss this season, taking a 13-8 win at Moose Krause Stadium on April 14. That win snapped a 37-game BIG EAST winning streak for the Hoyas, their first loss ever in the seven-year history of the BIG EAST women's lacrosse conference.

The win was also the second in a row for Notre Dame as the Irish also handed the Hoyas a 12-9 loss last May in the quarterfinals of the NCAA Tournament. Notre Dame is now 2-7 all-time against Georgetown in the all-time series, including a 2-3 record at home. At Georgetown, the Irish are 0-4 and the two teams have never met on a neutral field.

The winner of the Notre Dame-Georgetown game will meet the winner of the Syracuse-Rutgers game on Sunday, April 29 in the BIG EAST Championship game. That game will start at 2:30 p.m. and be televised live by College Sports Television (CSTV).
