Game Between #14 Notre Dame And #20 Villanova Postponed

March 8, 2005

VILLANOVA, Pa. – The NCAA Division I men’s lacrosse game between the 14th-ranked University of Notre Dame (1-1) and #20 Villanova University (2-1), originally scheduled for Tuesday at 4 p.m. (EST) at Villanova Stadium, has been postponed due to inclement weather in the Philadelphia area, which was experiencing snow and winds of greater than 25 miles per hour. The contest was rescheduled for Monday, March 28 at a time to be determined. The teams were slated to meet for the first time since 2000 and the first time at Villanova since 1999.

With the postponement, Notre Dame will next be in action on Saturday, as it concludes its spring-break trip in Carson, Calif., taking part in The First 4, an elite invitational. The Irish will match up with #10 North Carolina (1-1) at 5 p.m. (EST) in the Home Depot Center in a contest to be shown live to a national audience on College Sports Television.
