Champs | F&M Women's Lacrosse

5/1 - Lancaster, PA: This classic rivalry extended into this weekend's Centennial Conference Women's Lacrosse Championship game where Franklin & Marshall met Gettysburg College for the ninth time in as many years. It was an exciting game on both ends of the field, even as F&M pulled away 7-4 with 11:55 remaining. I was sure we were in for overtime as Gettysburg had the momentum after two quick goals at 3:28, bringing the score to 7-6. But F&M kept possession and killed the clock, that's where the score ended.

With the victory, F&M gained an automatic bid to the NCAA National Tournament, their 14th trip. Gettysburg will also likely win a bid.

Here's F&M's story, as well as the game's full coverage. Also picks from their 4/20 match up.
