HANOVER, Ind. – The Hanover men's lacrosse team has announced its schedule for the 2018 campaign, highlighted by a pair of three-game home stands in March and April.
The Blue and Red begin their schedule against Centre (Ky.) for the third consecutive year. Hanover fell to the Colonels each of the past two seasons, including a 10-9 home loss in 2016.
Following the opener against Centre, Hanover goes on the road for two games against Greensboro College (N.C.) and Piedmont (Ga.), neither of which the Panthers have played previously. The Blue and Red then have a three-game home stand that includes Carthage, Ohio Northern and DePauw. Last year, Carthage made the NCAA Division III National Tournament, losing in the first round.
Hanover opens conference play on the road against Bethany (W. Va.). Last season, the Panthers defeated Bethany 18-4 at Alumni Stadium. The Blue and Red are then home for five of their next six games including a match against Thiel (Pa.), who they took to three overtimes in their last head-to-head meeting.
The Panthers finish the regular season with three straight road games, the last of which being against Washington & Jefferson (Pa.).
