BLACKSBURG – The seventeenth-ranked Hokies lacrosse team is back at the Indoor Practice Facility on Wednesday when they take on the George Mason Patriots. First draw is set for 7 p.m.

Tech (3-2, 1-0) defeated Duke in the ACC opener on Saturday 17-14 behind Tristan McGinley’s five goals and five draw controls. Paige Petty added four goals and Meagh Graham made 10 saves in goal as the Hokies took down the Blue Devils in consecutive seasons.

The Hokies took advantage if its free position opportunities, converting 8 out of 10, while holding Duke to just 4 of 9 on such chances, in part due to Graham’s spectacular play.

Lindsey Tangeman leads the Patriots in scoring with 11 points on the season from five goals and six assists.
