Men’s lacrosse: Big season finale this weekend

Air Force men’s lacrosse needs some help, but they could be playing for a spot in the first ECAC postseason tournament next month.

The Falcons (5-7, 2-3 ECAC) host Hobart (5-8, 2-3), which is ineligible for postseason play, at noon Saturday at the academy.

If AFA wins and Ohio State (7-7, 2-3) loses at Bellarmine (4-10, 0-5), the Falcons take fourth and garner a spot in the league semifinals May 5 against tournament host No. 5 Denver. A Buckeyes win clinches fourth for Ohio State.

The Bellarmine-Ohio State game starts at 11 a.m. MT, so the Falcons may know their postseason fate before their game ends on Saturday.
