As the CAA schedule winds down to its final two weekends, the Pride as well as Drexel are looking at a must-win situation this week if they want to secure one of the four conference championship tournament spots. Following the Pride's 13-7 loss at Delaware last Saturday, the Blue Hens of UD (10-2, 3-0) have secured a playoff spot with their unblemished conference slate. UMass (8-4, 2-1), which the Pride defeated on April 6, topped Towson last week, and the Tigers of Towson (7-4, 2-1), which the Pride fell to in Maryland, 10-9 on March 30, are tied for second. Hofstra (4-8, 1-2) and Drexel (5-6, 1-2) are tied for fourth while Fairfield (5-7, 0-3) is almost eliminated from contention with their winless conference record.

 

Hofstra has wins over Lehigh (4-3), Utah (14-10), St. John's (9-7), and UMass (10-9 in OT). The Pride has dropped games to nationally-ranked Villanova (10-9 in OT), Georgetown (14-6), Ohio State (14-8) and Towson (10-9), as well as Stony Brook (11-10), Providence (11-10), Rutgers (10-7) and Delaware (13-7).

 
In the Pride's last outing at Delaware, who climbed into the top 20 in the Inside Lacrosse Media Poll this week, Hofstra trailed 6-4 at halftime before the Blue Hens opened the second half with four unanswered goals in the first 12:14 of the third quarter to open up a 10-4 lead. After Hofstra's Bryce Tolmie closed the gap to 10-5 with a goal just six seconds before the end of the period, Delaware added two more goals in the first 3:16 of the fourth quarter to put the game out of reach. Junior Ryan Tierney led the Pride with two goals while sophomore Bobby Casey recorded 10 saves in the Pride cage. Sophomore Brian Herber won 20 of 23 face-offs against the Blue Hens.
