The Hofstra women’s lacrosse team has a chance for a major signature win Wednesday afternoon when it takes on fourth-ranked Penn.
Last season when Penn was ranked fourth in the nation the Pride gave the Quakers quite the scare in Philadelphia rallying from a 6-1 deficit before falling 6-5. Penn (2-0) enters Shuart Stadium hot to start the season after wins over Drexel and third-ranked North Carolina.
Hofstra (2-2) will try and rebound from a 13-8 loss at Albany Saturday. The Pride have been led offensively this season thus far by senior attacker Stephanie Rice’s 12 points on nine goals and three assists.
