Quinnipiac meets Sacred Heart in NEC tourney
It was the first time the Bobcats had beaten the Pioneers in the past five meetings.
Friday's game will be the 17th time the two sides face each other, and Sacred Heart owns the all-time series lead 12-4. Sacred Heart won the 2010 NEC Championship game over Quinnipiac 12-7 and have continually knocked the Bobcats out of the playoffs season after season.
You'd figure the two teams would meet again and that rematch will take place Friday in the Northeast Conference semifinals at Hamden. History may be on Sacred Heart's side but the talent level is certainly on the Bobcats' side this time.
Quinnipiac is the No. 1 seed in the tournament. They wrapped up the conference title with a resounding 13-8 win at Monmouth in their regular-season finale.
Robert Morris faces Mount St. Mary's in the second game at 2:30 p.m.
The winners will meet on Sunday at noon at Hamden.
